Tyt. tomu: Założenie racjonalnego prawodawcy w polskim porządku prawnym. Księga Jubileuszowa z okazji siedemdziesięciopięciolecia Wydziału Prawa, Administracji i Ekonomii Uniwersytetu Wrocławskiego


The author of the publication reflected on the existence of the rational legislator’s paradigm in the theory and practice of applying law in contemporary Poland. Noting the endemic nature of the research problem in Polish jurisprudence, the author tried to confront the position of the doctrine with the judicial decisions of recent years and the legislative practice of the Sejm of the 8th term. The comprehensive approach to the issue was motivated by striving to formulate hypotheses and conclusions that could inspire subsequent explorers of the issues raised. Summing up the results of the conducted research, the author presented his critical position, recognising that the concept of a rational legislator raises serious doubts and justified objections, which means that it requires reinterpretation.
