The Concept of Law" property="og:title" /> The Concept of Law ( Oggi molti teorici del diritto ritengono che Herbert Hart, con la sua critica a Austin e a Kelsen, abbia dimostrato in modo conclusivo che la coercizione non è un elemento essenziale del diritto e che perciò non presenta alcun interesse per il filosofo del diritto. Contro l’opinione corrente, Pintore ritiene che la coercizione vada tuttora considerata un tema basilare della filosofia del diritto, almeno per il positivismo giuridico. L’autrice mostra inoltre che in The Concept of Law la coercizione gioca un ruolo cruciale in tre àmbiti: (i) l’analisi delle regole e degli obblighi sociali, morali e giuridici; (ii) la teoria dei sistemi giuridici come unione di norme primarie e secondarie; (iii) l’idea del contenuto minimo del diritto naturale.)" />

Many theorists assume that Herbert Hart, in his critiques of Austin and Kelsen, demonstrated compellingly that coercion is no essential character of law and that, therefore, this notion has no interest for legal philosophers. Against this common assumption, professor Pintore holds that coercion should be still looked at as a basic item for the philosophy of law. She shows that in The Concept of Law coercion does play a crucial law in three points: (i) the analysis of rules, as well as of social, moral and legal obligations, (ii) the vision of legal systems as consisting of both primary and secondary rules, and (iii) the idea of the minimum content of natural law.
