I gather in this book a series of texts - some unpublished, others already published but now again revisited – dealing with the deep cultural foundations of the Law of Ancien Regime. The idea that law is based on a universe of images, implicit pre-judgments and mental automatisms, is not much new, although the origin of this universe, as well as the degree and the foundations of its consistency, is still discussed. Stressing the existence of a deep structure of knowledge, dependent on historical contexts, implies recognizing the "local" character of its rationality and abandoning a fixed, universal and timeless conception of legal values. Many jurists will not willingly accept this idea, because they think - as the jurists we are dealing with in the book - that legal values are "natural." The essays gathered in the book arise from an opposed idea, refusing the naturalism and cognitivism that dominate the common sense of jurists, both ancient and modern. No matter how much values, norms and institutions appear necessary and timeless, they always depend on underlying cultural or communicative contexts. In any case, pre-modern legal culture, based on a dialogical and argumentative conception of the knowledge on human subjects, was ultimately less definitive on what was just or unjust, as well as on the intellectual course to be followed in order to determine it. In this sense, despite the current imagination about the dogmatism of the Ancien Regime’s culture, legal knowledge was less one-dimensional than that which came to prevail at the era of rationalism, framed by the belief in the universal and decontextualized character of the Truth. My original idea of an epistemic matrix underlying pre-modern legal knowledge, has varied in its theoretical, explicit or implicit, foundation: an ideal type, an unconscious mental universe, an implicit theory of practice, a common sense, a discursive structure. It never gained a definitive arrangement or formulation. Yet its ever-provisional theoretical status has not seemingly impaired its hermeneutical operability. Therefore, I have not attempted to forge an absolute theoretical coherence between these texts now revisited. In any case, the reconsideration of themes and some remodelling of the texts will hopefully contribute to give a stronger unity to essays that, having arisen in the course of life, witness a historiographical sensibility that was always present in my work – that the multiplicity of events can be condensed in more general models. And that the intelligibility of the past gains a lot from the use of these models.
