The author discusses the problem of intertwining and separation between law and politics. Until recently the sociological and Marxist critiques of conceptual jurisprudence, as well as their offspring Legal Realists and the Critical Legal Studies School, have emphasized a close connection and interdependence between law and politics. Moreover, in their radical version,the latter school saw law only as a tool in the hands of different ideological actors. This was, therefore, a contribution to the deconstruction of law. However, the author believes that a further step is to be made from such deconstruction towards rebuilding the very foundations of law, i.e. finding those elements which constitute its relative autonomy. Such view doescorrespond to the modern trends in Eastern and Central Europe, attempting to revitalize law and re-discover its classical role. Thus, the author uses the historical, phenomenological and epistemological criteria in order to demonstrate that the phenomena of law and politics can nevertheless be viewed as separated even if their complete separation can never be achieved.
