PATINO ARANGO, Alejandro. Importance of Philosophical Problems in Hart's Legal Philosophy. Prax. filos. [online]. 2011, n.32, pp. 175-205. ISSN 0120-4688.
In this paper I intend to show how Hart in order to develop his theory of law was influenced by different philosophical problems such as: 1. the importance given to ordinary language, influence he received from both Austin and Wittgenstein II; 2. The notion of Waisman's 'open texture' that Hart applied to the law 3. The notion of social behavior which is governed by rules as conceived by both Searle and Winch.
Keywords : Speech acts; intention; open texture; rules; costum; social actions.
