Download Langue et droit - Approche sociolinguistique, historique et by Marc Debono PDF

By Marc Debono

Cet ouvrage suggest une mise en point of view sociolinguistique, historique et épistémologique visant à éclairer los angeles manière dont s’articulent le « linguistique » et le « juridique ». Une étude approfondie de l. a. longue culture de théorisation des rapports entre « langue » et « droit » met d’abord à jour le déterminisme linguistique qui l’imprègne : l. a. pensée juridique serait inextricablement liée à l. a. langue de son expression. Ce déterminisme servant le plus souvent des mouvements d’affirmation identitaire contre l’autre, les fonctions et les implications éthico-politiques d’un rapport d’exclusivité trop souvent posé entre langue et droit mérite d’être interrogé : des manifestations récentes d’hostilité vis - à - vis du plurilinguisme juridique européen invitent en effet à être vigilant. L’ouvrage éclaire ensuite les raisons profondes de l. a. solidité des objets construits que sont los angeles « langue » et le « droit », et ceci du triple aspect de vue des représentations linguistiques, de l’histoire linguistique et juridique française, et des épistémologies disciplinaires – en droit et en sciences du langage. Dans le domaine juridique, on remarquera que l. a. stabilisation de l. a. relation signe/sens constitue un idéal s’exprimant chez les juristes à travers diverses représentations linguistiques. los angeles recherche de l. a. sécurité juridique peut expliquer une belief – majoritaire dans le monde du droit – du fonctionnement de l. a. langue comme un système de rapports prédictibles, stables et homogènes. Cette représentation sera utilement mise en point of view historique : l’histoire des unifications linguistique et juridique montre en effet une étonnante synergie, l. a. langue et le droit français se construisant conjointement, se « solidifiant » dans l. a. standpoint de l’édification stato-nationale. Les épistémologies disciplinaires ont logiquement été marquées par cette histoire intriquée, et cet ouvrage se suggest de mettre en évidence les « anciennes et profondes affinités » existant entre sciences linguistiques et juridiques (Besse, 2000 : 737).

Marc Debono est Maître de conférences en sciences du langage à l’Université François Rabelais de excursions où il mène ses recherches au sein de l’équipe PREFics-Dynadiv.
