  1. 1. Why Grundnorm? A Treatise on the Implications of Kelsen's Doctrine

    Author : Uta Bindreiter; Juridiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; recognition; Pure Theory; presupposition; precedence; norm hierarchy; norm conflict; membership; legal ‘ought’ ; Grundnorm; direct applicability; Basic norm; bindingness; validity.; Philosophy of law; theory of law; Rättsfilosofi; rättsteori;

    Abstract : The treatise is concerned with the source-—the “Grund”--of the bindingness of law. I contend, first, that the “presupposition” of the basic norm, on a certain reading of Kelsen’s doctrine, can be understood as constituting a normative source of positive law, and, secondly, that this reading of Kelsen admits of addressing the issue of the (formal) legitimacy of supra-national and “directly applicable” rules and other norms.

    Abstract : This dissertation is a collection of seven papers in which a number of questions are investigated regarding verbs that take a sentential complement as their direct object. These verbs are considered from different perspectives, namely from the perspective of the propositional attitude they express, or from the perspective of the syntactic construction they select, or from the point of view of the implications to which they might give rise.

    Keywords : anaphora; coherence; cohesion; context sensitivity; contextualism; discourse relations; discourse structure; paraphrase; predicate reference; presupposition; rhetorical adjustment; rhetorical relations; semantics–pragmatics interface; text structure; transcendental; translation; word meaning;

    Abstract : This thesis is dedicated to two distinct but convergent issues: the possibility of paraphrase and an account of context sensitivity on the basis of textual cohesion (or coherence). The possibility of explaining contextual specifications of meaning as a side effect of establishing textual cohesion is explored through an investigation into the nature of texts. READ MORE
