Les Kāmasūtra comme une porte d’entrée dans le droit hindou ancien ?

Abstract : This study aims at revealing the normative aspects of the Kāmasūtra in order to compare them to other Hindu legal texts. One has to understand that the Kāmasūtra are in fact the vessels and the mirrors of ancient India’s social and family rules, which demonstrate how much of a sophisticated set of rules they are. This standpoint can serve as an introduction for Western lawyers to this particular and complex system that is completely different from their own legal culture. In addition, this article will shed some light on how carnal relations inspire and affect law.
