Legal Cultures in Transition: An Autopoietic Approach

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper will discuss the utility of the concept of 'legal culture' in autopoietic explanation of the origin and outcome of transitional phases in legal systems. The main hypothesis is that a strictly autopoietic perspective could be useful but has to be revisited when examining periods of transition. In such periods social institutions are not yet established and their cultural filters are not yet limited by clear cut borders, but are rather characterized by an exceptional fluidity.

Analyzing recent developments of European legal systems (particularly those of Eastern Europe) this paper demonstrates that it is necessary to distinguish various forms of transition according to their temporal, spatial, social and substantial dimensions, and to use the concept of 'legal culture' in a correspondingly flexible way.
