La statualità come momento di una teoria giuridica della società di Andrea Bixio
Abstract – The article deals with the changes of the notion “state” and the evolution of sovereignty model. Theorists working in traditional concept of state may have difficulty understanding the concepts and terminology of another point of view, overlooking the necessary dialectical connection between sovereign state and status societatis. This contribution aims to find a different way of engaging the modern statehood, through which one can achieve a modern theory of the state based on a new form of sovereignty, understood as an associative and contractual relationship.
Keywords – Sovereignty – Self-government – Status societatis – Theory of the state – Modern state concept.
