Cite item


The article contains brief review of various approaches to a historical and legal periodization. The comparative-historical typology of the law is considered on the basis of historical and genetic (diachronic) and historical and structural (synchronic) approaches. It is offered to allocate such main aspects of perception of the law, as gnoseologo-axiological and ontologo-prakseological aspects. In their framework two directions of comparative-historical typology of the law are developed: morphological and nomotetiko-systematic. The author claims that nomotetiko-systematic approach to a periodization of law history is oriented on the analysis and classification of historical forms of law-making, specific law culture and practice of systematization (codification) of the law.
