The Wild creation of Law - an Imaginary Dialogue Between Luis Alberto Warat and Deleuze/Guattari about Law´s Semiotics


This article intends to establish a dialogue between Luis Alberto Warat´s project of a critical semiotics of law, one that avoids the common reductionisms of the legal epistemology from the beginning of the twentieth-century, and a few remarks of Deleuze/Guattari regarding semiotics. We take as our main reference the works of Deleuze and Guattari´s scholars that read them within the framework of legal theory, our conclusion is that the authors, Warat and Deleuze/Guattari, develop philosophical centered on the creation and the uncanniness of Law instead of them being concerned with truth and the conditions of possibility of the scientific legal knowledge, two common features of earlier legal epistemological concerns.
