En quel sens la rationalité juridique est-elle herméneutique?
Sur un héritage contemporain de philosophie pratique ricœurienne en théorie du droit

This essay draws some consequences affecting juridical rationality, particularly its normative theory, from the discussion of Ricoeur’s philosophy of law by Alain Papaux and François Ost. It emphasizes in particular the ambiguities of Papaux’s position regarding the notion of abduction and stresses the irreducibility of the hermeneutic dimension of legal argument.
