Callister Freedom Essay 1.22.Repository.Submission.Pdf, Paul D. Callister

Paul D. Callister

Freedom is overlooked as a legal and social concept, with few attempts to define it.  Lon Fuller articulated the critical question about freedom:  “How can the freedom of human beings be affected or advanced by social arrangement, that is by laws, customs, institutions, or other forms of social order that can be changed or preserved by purposive human actions?”  Freedom needs to be defined in the context of this question—as an ideal to be advanced by our social institutions, laws, and customs.  The article first begins with a framework for freedom established by Lon Fuller in a neglected article ...

This article presents the argument that our understanding of the nature of the relationship between modern constitutionalism and religious difference has suffered with the success of the story of legal tolerance and multiculturalism. Taking up the Canadian case, in which the conventional narrative of legal multiculturalism has such purchase, this piece asks how the interaction of law and religion - and, in particular, the practices of legal tolerance - would look if we sought in earnest to understand law as a component, rather than a curator, of cultural diversity in modern liberal societies. Understanding the law as itself a cultural form forces ...


Alcance Y Límites Del Principio De Proporcionalidad, Juan Carlos Riofrío Martínez-Villalba 2016 Universidad de los Hemisferios

Alcance Y Límites Del Principio De Proporcionalidad, Juan Carlos Riofrío Martínez-Villalba

Juan Carlos Riofrío Martínez-Villalba

RESUMEN: El presente trabajo analiza el alcance y los límites del principio de proporcionalidad en el derecho comparado, desde una perspectiva abstracta-metafísica y con una metodología inductiva. Debido a que su extensa aplicación en la práctica no siempre ha sido muy correcta, la investigación procura definir cuál es el sentido original del principio y cuáles son sus límites. Se pasan revista a tres clases de límites, en su orden: 1. los presupuestos de aplicación del principio (llamados límites a priori), sin los cuales sería irracional aplicarlo; 2. los límites del funcionamiento del principio que, o bien son límites internos imputables ...
