Alternative title:

Two kinds of respect for law. On a possibility of application of Fromm’s view into philosophical-legal research

Subject and Keywords:

theory of law   law   Fromm, Erich (1900-1980)   respect for law   philosophical-legal research


The paper is an attempt to look at the issues of respect for law from the standpoint of Erich Fromm’s philosophical anthropology. In the text I claim that Fromm’s philosophy provides plausible frameworks for interpretation of the results of empirical research on the prestige of law, conducted once by the most famous Polish legal sociologist — Adam Podgórecki. In particular Podgórecki’s thesis about relations between the mode of obeying the law and the personality of a man, as well as his thesis about the existence of two fundamental ways of respecting the law perfectly match the philosophy of the author of Escape from Freedom.
