The paper analyses the significance of the most recent works by Amedeo G. Conte for a theoretical approach to social action that escapes the risks of misplaced abstractness, to which the sociology of law is always exposed. The stress on the linguistic nature of the law, as an historical and cultural consequence of its proc-esses of institutionalisation, compels the sociologist to focus on the role of media-tor played by legal culture in determining what counts as a legal norm for social action. By thus avoiding both the reification of the content of these norms and the trivialisation of the description of the action, it is possible to revive the procedural, reciprocal and reiterative relevance of action to legal norms as specific institution-alised and procedural phenomena.
