The Pure Theory of Law was initially designed by Hans Kelsen (1881–1973) as a project of purification of legal science from factual elements and ideology which have no place within this science. Examining the problem of natural law played an important role in carrying out this project, which can be seen in Kelsen’s works collected in this book. This role is demonstrated against the background of Kelsen’s masterpiece of the classical period, Pure Theory of Law (first edition), and some late (after 1960) publications of this author. In this volume are also published several research works written by the leading Western specialists in Kelsen’s legal philosophy. This book can be useful for specialists in legal theory, philosophy of law, history of legal and political thought, for students learning these disciplines, as well for all those who are interested in methodological problems of legal science.

In most cases, the Russian civil law considers civil registration to be one of the elements of the actual composition that lies at the basis of the emergence, modification or termination of the subjective immovable property rights.
The institution of state registration of rights, the goal of which is to guarantee the existence of public, exhaustive, and authentic information concerning the subjective immovable property rights, can provide for a variety of means and ways of achieving this aim. The choice of one or the other combination of these predefines particular civil law (substantive) consequences that the law links to the act of state registration, as well as the general effect which the institution under consideration has on the real estate circulation as a whole.
