De Geordende Wereld Van Het Recht: Een Inleiding

Amsterdam University Press, 25.09.2003 - 456 Seiten
De geordende wereld van het recht is een verrassende inleiding tot een veelzijdig vakgebied. Drie thema's staan in dit boek centraal: de taal van het recht; geschiedenis en functioneren van de rechtsstaat en de kernactiviteiten van het juristenvak (als advocaat, wetgever of rechter). Na vijf jaar is dit enthousiast ontvangen boek toe aan een tweede druk. Daarin zal het thema van de kwaliteiten die een jurist moet bezitten om zich nuttig te maken in de maatschappij prominenter worden aangezet. De discussie over dit boek (en over het eveneens bij AUP uitgegeven boek Rediscovering Fuller) leidt tot een verheldering van de stellingen over de relatie tussen recht en moraal.

De geordende wereld van het recht is niet alleen bedoeld voor (aankomende) juristen, maar voor eenieder die zich interesseert voor de geschiedenis en de achtergronden van de rechtsstaat.

Seite 134 - Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any Intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices In the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back.
Seite 210 - It is a partnership in all science ; a partnership in all art ; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection . As the ends of such a partnership cannot be obtained in many generations, it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead and those who are to be born.
Seite 12 - Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience, then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right.
Seite 139 - Hereby it is manifest, that during the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called war; and such a war, as is of every man, against every man...
Seite 266 - Nor does this conclusion by any means suppose a superiority of the judicial to the legislative power. It only supposes that the power of the people is superior to both; and that where the will of the legislature, declared in its statutes, stands in opposition to that of the people, declared in the Constitution, the judges ought to be governed by the latter rather than the former. They ought to regulate their decisions by the fundamental laws, rather than by those which are not fundamental.
Seite 264 - Extend the sphere, and you take in a greater variety of parties and interests ; you make it less probable that a majority of the whole will have a common motive to invade the rights of other citizens, or if such a common motive exists, it will be more difficult for all who feel it to discover their own strength, and to act in unison with each other.
Seite 127 - It being thus manifest, that the Power of Kings and Magistrates is nothing else but what is only derivative, transferred, and committed to them in trust from the People to the common good of them all, in whom the power yet remains fundamentally and cannot be taken from them without a violation of their natural birthright...
Seite 210 - Our political system is placed in a just correspondence and symmetry with the order of the world...
Seite 140 - And in him consisteth the essence of the commonwealth; which, to define it, is one person, of whose acts a great multitude, by mutual covenants one with another, have made themselves every one the author, to the end he may use the strength and means of them all, as he shall think expedient, for their peace and common defence.
Seite 265 - This policy of supplying, by opposite and rival interests, the defect of better motives, might be traced through the whole system of human affairs, private as well as public. We see it particularly displayed in all the subordinate distributions of power ; where the constant aim is, to divide and arrange the several offices in such a manner as that each may be a check on the other ; that the private interest of every individual may be a sentinel over the public rights.
