Minima Iuridica. Reflections on Certain Legal (Un)commonplaces
The title of this book refers, of course, to Theodor Adorno’s well-known study, Minima Moralia: Reflections on a Damaged Life, even though some may find that very reference to be going too far, to be completely inappropriate, and, thus, quite unjustified. However, it is only a paraphrase of sorts, a play on words, a stimulus to the author’s imagination, reflection, and association called up by the German philosopher’s title – and nothing more than that. Beyond those, there are no links in terms of content. When I first came across Adorno’s text, minima moralia suggested to me an elementary morality, and only later did it become clear that Adorno’s book is about something quite different. But my first association stuck and became an inspiration for the following book. In Adorno’s text, the concept of minima moralia relates to form rather than content; in our discussions here, it relates to both – to short forms (minima) about basic legal issues (minima iuridica).
This book, Minima Iuridica. Refleksje o pewnych (nie)oczywistościach prawniczych, won the Professor Tadeusz Kotarbiński Prize for the best book in the humanities in 2020.
