Venti di tempesta e foreste del diritto. Il discorso della legge come argine alla sopraffazione delle narrative emergenziali

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Storm winds and forests of law. The discourse of the law as a barrier to the overpowering of emergency narratives

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

There is a recurring, dangerous, and erroneous equivalence between the phenomenal reality of emergencies and the idea of a justified exception to the rule of law. Such equivalence, when critically regarded from a 'Law & Literature' perspective, reveals its intrinsic dangerousness - even more so, as 'narratives of emergency' possess the ability to get ingrained in our lives and in our beliefs. A 'virus' which, to be successfully eradicated, requires robust civic 'antibodies', to be developed well beyond and independently of the current pandemic crisis.
