On the Modes of Confluence in Law

Abstract

In this brief essay, I discuss about the significance of the confluence in law, by also arguing that there are three important modes of confluential process. These are rendition, modulation, and construction. Rendition is the normative translation of key concepts or ideas at the basis of legal practice in a society; modulation is the change of an understanding of some theory-set in existing law by another foreign theory-set; and construction is the establishment of new laws in new spaces of law in a society. I show particular cases to confirm the effects of these modes in the confluence of law, along with suggesting the implications of this investigation for further interdisciplinary studies of law.

New law needs coherence with existing laws. This is a logical consequence of the fundamental requirement of legal stability, which is also a collorary of the ideal of the rule of law.

This circle is also to be understood generally as the interpretive spiral of receptivity, sagacity, and practicality. This spiral develops successively toward a new dimension of itself over time, with a better interpretation and integration of values. See Hasegawa (2009b), p. 91ff.
