The present contribution aims to address the ways in which legal phi- losophy approached and conceptualised the emergence of information technologies between the 1960s and 1970s. We will do that by examining the contributions of four thinkers, coming from different philosophical and ideological backgrounds: Vittorio Frosini, Mario Losano, Luigi Lombardi Vallauri and Renato Borruso. These authors look into the evolution of law and technology from different perspectives that are representative of different approaches to legal theory: the evolutions of ide- alism (Frosini), analytic philosophy combined with positivism (Losano), anti-positivism in combination with ethical/axiological inquiry (Lombardi Vallauri), as well as the more practical policy-oriented approach of legal practitioners (Borruso).

Abstract

The present contribution aims to address the ways in which legal phi- losophy approached and conceptualised the emergence of information technologies between the 1960s and 1970s. We will do that by examining the contributions of four thinkers, coming from different philosophical and ideological backgrounds: Vittorio Frosini, Mario Losano, Luigi Lombardi Vallauri and Renato Borruso. These authors look into the evolution of law and technology from different perspectives that are representative of different approaches to legal theory: the evolutions of ide- alism (Frosini), analytic philosophy combined with positivism (Losano), anti-positivism in combination with ethical/axiological inquiry (Lombardi Vallauri), as well as the more practical policy-oriented approach of legal practitioners (Borruso).
