Legal Cybernetics: An Educational Perspective
Paper i proceeding, 2016
Law and control. For the first perception, these concepts may seem different, since the education considers law as a social science and classifies it to the so-called ‘human’ category, while control (from educational point of view) belongs to technical, ‘real’ category. However, in fact, if we deeply examine the essential functions of these concepts, we realise that law is control itself, more precisely, a control in a narrower sense. Therefore, let us try to approach the basic theory of law from a technical, control perspective. The main goals of this approach are on the one hand to change the way like students think, broaden their horizons and perceptions, bringing closer the human and the real sides as well. This way, students would gain an insight into the basics of the other discipline, discover the parallels between these concepts and learn to think more broadly. On the other hand, by using this approach, we can solve the main problems of the current legal regulation. This article deals with how to apply the outlined approach to education, indicating the possible practical application methods and future benefits.
