Main themes
This course aims to integrate the teaching of human and family law into a general socio-political reflection on the respective roles of the individual, the family and the State (or civil society) in contemporary society when it comes to determining the norms of the private and family life of individuals.
The course proposes an interdisciplinary approach in which human and family law is considered in the light of various non-legal human sciences (psychology, philosophy, sociology, history, anthropology). Within the framework of such an approach, the rules of human and family law will be compared with texts from these different disciplines (Françoise Héritier, Paul Veyne, Claude Levi-Strauss, etc.).
