Abstract:     
In this essay, the author analyses meticulously what he names “rule of rationality” in the activity of the State, in order to determine its implications with respect to punitive power. With this purpose in mind, the author studies the concept of “criminal rationality” of the State in relation with its Executive Power, its Judicial Power and its Legislative Power. Finally, the text studies in detail the legislative activity of the State in criminal matters, where the jurist finds major levels of irrationality.
