Nichilismo giuridico? Una sfida al diritto*
di Vittorio Possenti**
The paper reflects on the phenomenon of legal nihilism and its consequences on the law. According the author, legal nihilism is considered an important expression of European nihilism which undermines the specific nature of law, turning it towards «the will of the strongest» and breaking down its links with reason and justice. Opposing this perspective, this article tries to support the idea that the concepts of human nature, person and reason are the true sources of law.
