Princípios e Coerência na Argumentacião Jurídica: Principles and Coherence in Legal Reasoning

Research output: Working paper


The central thesis of the paper is that all forms of legal reasoning from principles that can be understood as arguments grounded on coherence have a different (perhaps easier) underpinning political justification than those forms of utilization of principles that cannot be seen as springing from coherence (such as the notion of proportionality in the strict sense).
