Introduction: modernisation, national identity, and legal instrumentalism

Michał Gałędek


Research in the area of the history of law seeks to understand the instrumentality of law through two broad themes. Law may be considered as an instrument either (1) from the perspective of the analysis of techniques (functional approach) or (2) of objectives (axiological approach). Within the first approach, the conducted research may focus on how legal problems are identified and their solutions developed, whether autonomously or by transplantation and subsequent adaptation. Within the second approach, a historian of law may explore how law can transform reality, especially as a tool of modernisation and/or as a means to shape and strengthen national identity or other goals defined from the point of view of national interest. The presented book brings together texts whose authors conducted their research on both planes.
