Notes
  • Language is not only the servant of the law but also its master. Language constitutes a pattern of recognition that sets the frame for legal discussions. It is normally not as precise as we are made to believe. From language to writing again changes the pattern of recognition. Writing is a time machine, it is characterized by inertia, and rigidity. It pretends to offer a context free language, and thus tends to give abstract rules a superior meaning. We have to be aware of this when interpreting written texts which should not be taken more seriously than oral words. 1997 by John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
