The Creativity of the Jurist: Giovanni Pascuzzi's latest book

Giovanni Pascuzzi's latest book, "La creatività del giurista" [The Jurist's Creativity], has been published few weeks ago by Zanichelli of Bologna. See the table of contents (in Italian)


Here a translation from the back cover:


Why a Nobel prize was never assigned to a jurist? We expect new discoveries, inventions, new ideas that can improve the well being of the mankind from scholars in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, economics. In the field of law, instead, innovation is always seen with a certain degree of suspicion. Nobody expects that a jurist could show a high or low degree of creativity. In the words of Piero Calamandrei: “jurists can’t afford the luxury of fantasy”.

But at a closer look, changes are a common features of the law of the western legal tradition. History abounds of examples of legal innovations driven by legislators, courts, lawyers, and scholars. Behind these innovations the learned hand of the jurist is at work.

This book is not about the legal techniques employed to change the law (for instance, legislative reforms). It looks, instead, to the cognitive techniques of innovation that jurists employ. Pointing out to selected examples of the most significant legal changes that took place in the last decades in different fields of the law, this book tries to single out and describe the cognitive techniques employed when the jurist is called to give an answer to old and new problems.

We use creativity skills in the legal field, or strategies to encourage the inception of new ideas that should be taught and learned; they make clear that a jurist can never stop to question the consequences of the legal solution proposed.

When to the creativity of the jurist will be acknowledged the fundamental role that it already plays in practice, the idea of assigning a Nobel in the field of law will eventually follow naturally.

I leave a leave a response when I especially enjoy
a post on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's triggered by the fire displayed in the article
I browsed. And on this post The Creativity of the Jurist: Giovanni Pascuzzi's latest book.

I was excited enough to post a comment ;-) I actually do have
a few questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Is it only me or does it look like a few of the responses
come across like written by brain dead individuals? :-P And,
if you are writing on other social sites, I'd like to follow you.
Would you list the complete urls of your shared pages like your
Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many
choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas?

Thank you!
