The Coherence of EU Law

This chapter analyzes the Finnish analytical legal positivism in the forms it took from the 1950s to the early 1970s, and explores what kind of questions that approach would entail for the study of EU law. It argues that the message of analytical legal positivism may be relevant for the study of European law even today. It underlines the need to rethink and redefine the traditional conceptual apparatus used in legal reasoning and legal science.

Keywords:   Finland, analytical legal positivism, European law, EU law, legal reasoning, legal science
