Legal Reasoning in the Theory of Petrazycki

  • Alexander Nikolaevich Shytov
Part of the Law and Philosophy Library book series (LAPS, volume 54)

Abstract

The theory of a Russian scholar of Polish descent, Leon Petrazycki, contains interesting ideas, which can help us to clarify the intrinsic connection between legal reasoning and the conscience of judges. This connection is left unnoticed in many contemporary writings about judicial decision-making,1 which makes it necessary to consider a theory which paid attention to the relationship between legal reasoning and conscience, even though this theory is almost a hundred years old and is not well known in the Western legal thought.
