  • Victoria Iturralde


This article is a commentary on chapter I of the book The Problem of Legal Meaning by Pierluigi Chiassoni. This work reconstructs the main ideas of the chapter. While accepting some of the these defended by the author, it discussed two of its central theses: 1) from the fact that the provisions of the sources of law are statements of natural language, it does not follow that its meaning is equivalent to the conventional linguistic meaning; and 2) that there is no room for truth in interpretation in its proper sense and practical terms.
