Abstract

This work analyses the influence Ferrajoli has had on a part of juridical scholars (i.e. the so-called “fact-theorists”) on the topics of truth, procedural knowledge, and certainty. The paper essentially questions the occurrence of “rehabilitation” of alethic realism in the legal field and the ways the notion of truth has been analysed and justified by these theorists.
