A few basic considerations on the method of finding the law - Einige Grundüberlegungen zur Methode der Rechtsfindung

By Jochen Bung


The contribution attempts to illustrate why it is appropriate to speak of finding, re-cognising and application, or applying, of the law. Reservations have been articulated about this use of language as a consequence of ontologically sceptical assumptions, which raise doubts as to the level of reality contained in these terms. “Legal ontology” is used as a knock-down argument in certain pointed aspects of this scepticism. However, there is no reason to do so.Der Beitrag versucht zu verdeutlichen, warum es in Ordnung ist, von Rechtsfindung, Rechtserkenntnis und Rechtsanwendung zu sprechen. Bedenken gegenüber diesem Sprachgebrauch sind in der Folge ontologieskeptischer Annahmen artikuliert worden, die Zweifel am Realitätsgehalt der genannten Begriffe anmelden. „Rechtsontologie” wird in bestimmten Pointierungen dieser Skepsis als Knock-down-Argument eingesetzt. Dafür gibt es aber keinen Grund
