Abstract

A historical and prospective account of the transformations of legal systems and legal thinking on four subjects: global vision of law (paradigm); social contract and the State; justice and the Judges ; legal interactions and interpersonal relationships. The essay covers three periods of time: the roots of modern law; Welfare state and its crisis; the near future. It tests three competitive hypotheses regarding the current transformations affecting the law: the economical model; the procedural model and the communitarian model.
