"Fact as Law. An Archeology of Legal Realism"

Abstract : An attempt at historical jurisprudence, the essay looks at the modern conception of "facts", associated with the Scientific revolution of the Seventeenth century, as a sequence in a broader archeological scenario, which encompasses both the medieval rediscovery of the inquisitorial procedure associated with Roman law, and the Legal Realist's call, at the outset of Twentieth century jurisprudence, to treat "law as fact".
