Abstract:

This volume is the second part of a project which hosts an interdisciplinary
discussion about the relationship among law and language, legal practice and
ordinary conversation, legal philosophy and the linguistics sciences. An
international group of authors, from cognitive science, philosophy of language
and philosophy of law question about how legal theory and pragmatics can
enrich each other.

In particular, the first part is devoted to the analysis of how pragmatics can
solve problems related to legal theory: What can pragmatics teach about the
concept of law and its relationship with moral, and, in particular, about the
eternal dispute between legal positivism and legal naturalism? What can
pragmatics teach about the concept of law and/or legal disagreements?

The second part is focused on legal adjudication: it aims to construct a
pragmatic apparatus appropriate to legal trial and/or to test the tenure of
the traditional pragmatics tools in the field. The authors face questions such
as: Which interesting pragmatic features emerge from legal adjudication? What
pragmatic theories are better suited to account for the practice of judgment
or its particular aspects (such as the testimony or the binding force of legal
precedents)? Which pragmatic and socio-linguistic problems are highlighted by
this practice?
