Diseguaglianza e condizioni personali. Una polemica sull'eguaglianza

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Inequality and personal conditions. A controversy over equality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


[Autom. eng. transl.] This report has been entrusted with the task of opening the discussion on the border between permitted inequalities (lawful, opportune or even due) and prohibited, meaning by way of a first approximation the concept of inequality in the broad sense, including both the differences in treatment juridical, as well as differences of fact not opposed by law. To put inequality at the center of attention, instead of directly equality, we have chosen to look at the doctrine that on this last concept has its own critical attention, highlighting its limits and ambiguity. Particular reference was made to some broader and more radical contributions, placed between general constitutional law, the theory of law and other branches of the social sciences (Part I). This examination has allowed us to fix the points of view, through which we have looked at the normal field of investigation of constitutional law: the Constitution, of course, through the study of its genesis and its interpretative developments (Part II). In the conclusions (Part III) some general considerations are pointed out on the limits of the principle of equality: for its deconstruction, or rather for a demystification of some characters that are predicated of it. We have tried to draw some considerations on why, due to some differentiations, it is more difficult to express a negative legal judgment, especially in the judicial interpretation and application of the Constitution
