Diritto e storia: intervista a Raimondo Santoro


Further to being interviewed by Mario Varvaro, Raimondo Santoro introduces his ideas regarding the methodology of scientific research in the field of Roman law. This methodology takes into account a detailed investigation of sources and its close relationship with other historical disciplines, in which the technical nature of the legal point of view cannot be neglected. Santoro identifies the concept of law from the viewpoint of ‘legal experience’, which results from the ‘action’ and consists of development from the past to the present towards the future. He underlines the importance of historiography and the historical relativity of numerous dogmatic approaches. The interview concludes with the hope that these and other issues will inspire legal historians to continue this discussion.
