The present article tries to examine and to vindicate the function and present sense of the philosophy of the right in a context of renewed and increasing interest of the own jurists towards this matter. Unfortunately we have converted the teaching of the Right in a technical-legal question hardly specialized in the different branches that compose the legal world since a vision of isolation and in a little interdisciplinary monasticism. The strong professional direction of the law schools as a factory of lawyers for the business world strongly impoverishes the humanist-civic future formation of the professionals of the Right. The legal philosophy satisfies from this perspective an irreplaceable didactic function that connects the right with its ethical suppositions and political implications. The work tries to do a brief historic travel through the evolution and origin of this philosophical and juridic knowing until arrive to the present debate between iusnaturalism and iuspositivism to conclude subsequently deepening in the function on the philosophy of the right as a metajuridic and metascientific knowing in its double version of legal methodology and theory of the justice
