Quelques observations sur la poétique de la doctrine

Authors: Normand, Sylvio
Abstract: Legal doctrine in its published state relies on an approach to poetics that uses specific forms and processes. This study looks at the textual relationships that bind a doctrinal article to other closely-related texts. Two types of textual relationship are examined: intertextuality, where one text is contained within another in the form of a citation, reference or allusion, and paratextuality, where texts such as a preface, notes, plan, subheadings, tables and the index are placed alongside the doctrinal text itself The textual relationships help underline the singularity of legal doctrine, revealing its status as an authority and the importance of the mechanisms designed to facilitate access. The textual relationships found specifically in doctrine reflect some traits of legal culture and its development. The era of digital publishing will bring about a transformation of intertextuality and paratextuality and probably also of the legal authority traditionally ascribed to doctrine in the legal community.
