Resumen

SILVA IRARRAZAVAL, Luis Alejandro. ABOUT JURISDICTION OF RIGHTS: LEGISLATOR AND JUDGE IN THE LIGHT OF THE CLASSIC CONCEPT OF DETERMINATIO. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2020, vol.47, n.2, pp.331-357. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372020000200331.

This paper retrieves the importance of the classic concept of determinatio, as a key to restraining the expansive force of fundamental rights when judicially enforced. The very same nature of fundamental rights requires a prudential judgment so as to determine their legal scope, that is what they generally command, permit or prohibit. Such prudential judgement belongs to the political authority in the exercise of its legislative function, because it corresponds better with a discourse grounded on natural reasoning than with the artificial reasoning which is proper to the legal discourse. Thus, when the Judiciary protects fundamental rights at the expenses of the legal order, either ignoring or contradicting statutory law, he practices a kind of reasoning that is not judicial in nature but political.

Palabras clave : Fundamental rights; determinatio; separation of powers.
