Identificaciones personales en Derecho

A legal theory which merely describes legal norms is able to report about symptoms, not about structures and causes. Only if legal analysis is not exclusively focussed on the syntactical components of law, but also includes its semantical and pragmatical components, a comprehensive vision of law can be obtained. Personal identifications belong to the pragmatical components which in many aspects constitute subconscious prerequisites for the functioning of a legal system.
