Abstract [en]

Ingemar Hedenius (1908-1982) was professor of practical philosophy at Uppsala University 1947-1973 as well as a prolific and controversial contributor to the public debate in the 1940’s through the 1960’s. His critique of Christianity, in particular (e.g., 1949, 1951, 1964), caused quite a stir (on this, see Nordin 1984, 177-84). Although Hedenius was primarily a moral philosopher, he also treated legal-philosophical questions now and then, and it is these contributions that have earned him a place among the Scandinavian realists. But unlike better known realists like Alf Ross (1946, 1959) and Karl Olivecrona (1939, 1971), Hedenius, who wrote almost exclusively in Swedish, did not put forward a comprehensive legal philosophy. He did, however, introduce into legal thinking a distinction between internal and external legal statements (Section 2), and put forward a “realistic” (or sociological) analysis of the concept of a valid legal rule (Section 3) and an ideal-type analysis of the concept of ownership (Section 4). He also analyzed the concept of a performative and discussed its relevance to legal thinking (Section 5).
