The paper is devoted to analyzing, by using basic notions of set theory, the problem of the identification of law and the notion of a frame of meanings attributable to legal texts. The main results of the inquiry carried out in the paper are: 1) that only a neutral, non-evaluative, definition of law can do from a legal theoretical viewpoint; 2) that the concept of law should not be seen as referring to a unitary set of norms, but rather as referring to a plurality of sets and of results of operations on sets.

Abstract

The paper is devoted to analyzing, by using basic notions of set theory, the problem of the identification of law and the notion of a frame of meanings attributable to legal texts. The main results of the inquiry carried out in the paper are: 1) that only a neutral, non-evaluative, definition of law can do from a legal theoretical viewpoint; 2) that the concept of law should not be seen as referring to a unitary set of norms, but rather as referring to a plurality of sets and of results of operations on sets.
