Example text

From the very meager case law on the abuse of rights that warns us that the individual right of property is limited by a certain concern for its social function, and from the fact, which we have known for a long time, that it is not absolute, he concludes, ultra probata, thflt individual property no longer exists as a subjective right, that it exists only as a social function. 5 4. There is a critical study of this juridical individualism which, unlike Duguit's, is balanced, and consequently convincing, in an excellent thesis from Dijon by Emmanuel Gounot, published under the title Le principe de l'autonomie de 1a vo1onte en droit prive (Paris, 1912).

The juridical norms that regulate the buying and selling of property in a society determine the condition of goods (some are declared transferable and in commerce, others untransferable and outside of commerce) and the status of persons (some are recognized as capable of possessing and acquiring, others incapable or subject to certain incapacities). Thus, the reciprocal position of goods and men is established, legitimate transactions are defined in advance, and a situation is determined that is both social and juridical.

One is that everything in it is enchained by determinant causes, that it is without purpose, and that therefore, if any order appears in it, this order will be amoral. This is the mechanistic conception. The other view is that everything is not enchained by strictly determinant causes, that the laws of nature have a certain contingency about them, that the world may have a purpose, and that therefore, if a certain order appears in nature, this order can have been willed, at least in part, and that it is the consequence of a choice between good and evil.
