MDER-4202 Retos al Derecho

This seminar critically analyzes the main theoretic perspectives that describe, explain or justify the consolidation of the modern State in the global north. In addition, it conducts an in-depth study of the consolidation of Law as an independent science and the theories of Law that question the possibility of a radical separation between Law and other disciplines. This course also analyzes how the theories of State and Law have played a role in the emergence, consolidation and/or justification of Law and Latin American states in general, and the Colombian State in particular. Finally, it aims for students to develop their skills for reading and interpreting texts on political philosophy and Law and writing essays relating to the same topics.
