This article describes and analyzes the legislative politics of the revolutionary regimes in Russia in 1917-1918. The author aims to demonstrate the political meaning of the form of early Soviet legislation and its legitimizing effect. Revolutionary legislators often used specific language in new laws as a vehicle for legitimacy, i.e., as a means of making the people comply with those laws. The two main types of legal language used by the Bolsheviks can be interpreted from the perspective of different types of legitimacy. The revolutionary strategy used propagandistic legislation, written in the language of lay people, which urged them to act according to the new law. This can be seen as a request for the people to take certain actions and thus to legitimize the soviets. On the other hand, they also used the traditional strategy by employing old bureaucratic means of writing and distributing legislation to the local soviets. The language used by this strategy could not be easily understood by a lay audience and implied a tradition of obeying the law written in familiar legal language, which in turn implied rational/legal legitimacy. The second strategy had already become dominant after the first months of the Bolshevik Revolution. This observation demonstrates that, from the very beginning of their rule, Soviet leaders approached legislative policy from a technocratic point of view, which determined the further development of Soviet legal theory and practice.
In this article are analyzed the event of the International legal philosophy symposium “Rationality in law”. Author’s attention is focused on description of the main theses of the presentations made at the symposium. As to M. Antonov’s presentation the author stresses importance of analysis of the arguments in favor of unity of law that have been postulated in the history of legal philosophy and which have been often based on different versions of holism. In L. Clerico presentation it is underscored that the conception of weighting of principles elaborated by the contemporary German philosopher Robert Alexy is applicable in the realm of constitutional law. The presentation of P. Chiassoni was remarkable through its division between three kinds of truth: formal truth as correspondence of reasoning to laws of logic; instrumental truth as applicability of means for obtaining of certain goals; essential truth as selection of highest ethical values and relations between them. The report of R. Caracciolo was devoted to the problem of correlation between the binding force of norms and the persuasive force of reasons for action. J. Moreso analyzed the applicability of classical logic in the world of law and how laws of logic work in legal order. M. Farrell proposed an interesting reconstruction of the legal philosophy of Jeremy Bentham in the light of his project of codification and restructuring of the judicial system of England. In J. Rodriguez’s presentation were compared the differences between the logic of norms and the logic of normative propositions. E. Bulygin concentrated his attention on comparative analysis of analytical philosophy of law and of metaphysical conceptions of rationality in law. In his presentation C. Carcova defended the postulates of the school of critical legal studies. R. Vigo stresses the importance of natural law and legal argumentation in philosophy of law. In his presentation J. Cerdio attempted to differentiate law from morality through the lenses of Kantian division between theoretical reason and practical reason. R. Gibourg described and compared the relative force of magical and rational principles in law. In the presentation of E. Lisanuyk three images of deontic logic in law were analyzed.
The article is prepared on the results of the British national corpus processing (BNC, British National Corpus) in the linguistic research system GATE Developer. The authors faced the problem of reduced performance as a result of incorrect distribution of RAM by the system. The paper investigates the problem of memory overflow, identifies possible causes of incorrect operation, pro\vides a brief overview of tools for profiling applications developed on the Java platform. The results of profiling and possible problem solutions are reported.
