The transformation of legal semantics in postmodern society: from the “subsumption” of cases to “balancing” and a semantics of networks

Karl-Heinz Ladeur

Abstract

For several years, we have been tackling anew the deep and disruptive transformation of the legal system that is provoked by the emergence of the “society of networks”. This is, so to speak, a tertiary remodelling of the liberal legal system – and, again, it has major consequences for its semantics. After individuals and organisations as legal actors, we are now confronted with a new type of quasi-actors – networks that undermine the hitherto taken-for-granted borders between the inside and outside of organisations, between individuals and organisations, and the rules of the game are changed once more. The operation of the law with clear distinctions, well-defined conceptions, is again severed, because more and more highly complex cases and situations that only allow for a design of a legal structure in “real time” come to the fore.

Keywords

Legal semantics. Semantics of networks.
