Ars Interpretandi is addressed to legal philosophers, jurists, and in general to anyone dealing with the “art” of the law. Facing a growing specialization of the juridical philosophy, its complexity and its theoretical abstraction, Ars Interpretandi aims at bringing back the attention to the law intended primarily as juridical experience and an interpretation, following the idea that the interpretative activity cannot be reduced to the research of meanings hidden inside juridical texts, but it is a far wider enterprise linked to practical reasonableness, which aims at orientating the uses of the law in the contemporary pluralistic society.
