La filosofía política de Kant en el horizonte contemporáneo

Considering the horizon of the actual internacional politics and adapting Kant's canonics questions, the essay ponders what can we know about politics and what can we expect from it. The question about the possibility of a reconciliation between passion and reason in the future history, postulated in his political theory, is the occasion to point out both the realism and the...

Acerca del método crítico-trascendental y su aplicación en la filosofía kantiana del Derecho

In this paper we intend to analyse the central thesis developed in the Metaphysical Principles of the Doctrine of Right (1796), in order to emphasise the importance of the critical-transcendental method (used in the Critic of pure Reason to solve important epistemological problems) in the kantian Philosophy of Right. The specific juridical problems developed in the Doctrine of...

In this paper I analyze the theoretical positions of various authors attempting to answer the question: What makes a norm valid? As a cornerstone for my analysis I take the works of Ernesto Garzón Valdés since nowadays they have come to offer...

Sobre ontología jurídica e interpretación del Derecho

Ontologically speaking, my contention is that Law is composed of utterances. These legal utterances are elements that comprise Law and precede interpretative activity. The interpretative activity that addresses such utterances, that is, interpretation of Law, focuses on those designated as <<interpretative utterances>>. Interpretative utterances differ from judicial utterances...
