The paper provides a comparison between the conception of legal interpretation elaborated by Pierluigi Chiassoni in his book "Interpretation without Truth", and that outlined by Mark Greenberg in the entry "Legal Interpretation", recently published in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Greenberg’s metaphysical take on legal interpretation is, in many respects, at the opposite end of the spectrum to the jurisprudential standpoint defended by Chiassoni, which is related to the tradition of legal realism. Therefore, the comparison of Chiassoni’s understanding of the legal interpretation with Greenberg’s is particularly interesting from a philosophical point of view. In particular, it allows us to highlight a blind spot in the treatment of the subject offered by these two scholars.

Abstract

The paper provides a comparison between the conception of legal interpretation elaborated by Pierluigi Chiassoni in his book "Interpretation without Truth", and that outlined by Mark Greenberg in the entry "Legal Interpretation", recently published in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Greenberg’s metaphysical take on legal interpretation is, in many respects, at the opposite end of the spectrum to the jurisprudential standpoint defended by Chiassoni, which is related to the tradition of legal realism. Therefore, the comparison of Chiassoni’s understanding of the legal interpretation with Greenberg’s is particularly interesting from a philosophical point of view. In particular, it allows us to highlight a blind spot in the treatment of the subject offered by these two scholars.
