Chapter 9 Legal Positivism in the Postwar Debate

  • Mauro Barberis
  • Giorgio Bongiovanni

Abstract

As was noted earlier, the central theme in the legal-philosophical debate after World War II was the relation between law and morals. This drew into a discussion two research traditions, natural law and legal positivism, that had hitherto tended to ignore each other: Exemplary in this respect is Kelsen’s gesture in stating that no reine Rechtslehre could ever concern itself with justice.
