The Individual’s Plural Unity P.F. (by Antonia Cozzolino) - ABSTRACT: Savona’s essay ‘In limine juris’. La genesi ‘extra ordinem’ della giuridicità e il sentimento del diritto (ESI, Naples 2005), to which this review is devoted, starts out from the idea that law’s birth through science does not exhaust the scope of legality. Savona analyses law’s genetic moments, both subjective and objective, and has his essay follow in the footsteps of the currents of hermeneutics and ‘legal experience’, which treat legal science as a product of symbolic and cultural knowledge, heavily conditioned by the historical and social context of the communities where it develops. In this way, the scope of law can be understood as related inseparably to individuals’ personal and inter-subjective formation. The notion of person then becomes central. To become a person means to act in such a way that the human being’s existential effort is expended along a path of gradual valorisation of his bond with the world, ultimately ending with the decision in favour of law, as a guarantee of the individual’s dignity and rights.)" />
