Andreas von Arnauld explains and reconstructs an idée directice of the law, which precisely because of its omnipresence in the legal discourse is in danger of being consigned to oblivion. The author examines teleology, normative structures and manifestations of legal certainty from different perspective, i.e. genealogical, topological and comparative, in order to give a differentiated picture of this general principle of law.
In addition to justice, legal certainty is one of the main objectives of the law. We cannot imagine the legal discourse of an institutionalized legal order, particularly the German legal order, without it. Andreas von Arnauld explains and reconstructs an idée directrice of the law, which precisely because of its omnipresence in the legal discourse is in danger of being consigned to oblivion. The author examines teleology, normative structures and manifestations of legal certainty from different perspectives, i.e. genealogical, topological and comparative, in order to give a differentiated picture of this general principle of law. The comparison with other European legal systems contributes to a correction of the one-sidedness in the national perspective.
