Un modelo 'saussureano' de la relación entre el ordenamiento jurídico y las decisiones judiciales. Algunos aportes desde un paralelismo con la lingüística

Autor:Helga María Lell
Pàgines:36-58
RESUMEN

En este artículo se parte del problema que enfrenta la ciencia del derecho en el momento de definir cuál es su objeto: si el ordenamiento jurídico o las decisiones judiciales. Esto implica un problema al menos si se entiende que el primero constituye una estructura con características generales, esenciales y sociales y las segundas simplemente son contingentes y particulares. Para explicar las características de esta dicotomía, se recurre a un paralelismo entre la disciplina lingüística y la jurídica. Es a partir de esta base que se pretende manifestar que existen características en la dicotomía lengua/habla que permiten comprender algunas características de la relación entre el ordenamiento jurídico y las decisiones judiciales. Desde este ámbito, el artículo se centra en las controversias sobre el carácter individual o social de las decisiones judiciales. En primer lugar, se exponen las ideas saussureanas que plantean en términos antinómicos la relación entre sistema y actos individuales y que dan al primer extremo las características de social y esencial y al último las de individual y contingente. En segundo lugar, se plantean algunas críticas tendientes a romper con esta postura y que derivan en la posterior reformulación del planteo saussureano. Esta reformulación se inspira en el pensamiento de Coseriu en el ámbito de la lingüística y es la que, finalmente, da pie a la aseveración que da inicio a este trabajo. Palabras clave: Decisiones judiciales; ordenamiento jurídico; modelo saussureano; polifonía; paralelismo
