La concezione istituzionale fra filosofia e teoria generale: Georges Renard e Maurice Hauriou


This article proposes a comparison between the institutional conception in Maurice Hauriou’s and Georges Renard’s thought, whose doctrinal positions are placed in different fields. Really, Hauriou proposed his theory on the sociological field, but it then was successful in the legal science; just in this context his thought had its complete development, particularly in his essay La théorie de l’institution et de la fondation (1925), in which the “anatomy” and the “physiology” of the concept of institution are analysed. But it is mostly in Renard’s thought that this concept signifies the development of St. Thomas’ “social reflections”. Indeed he starts from the consideration that the common good is the continuation of the individual good and arrives to the theorization of institution as a subject of law, of which aim is to promote the rights and the moral improving of the men in it being.
