Kelsen Before Kelsen – Reflections on Hans Kelsen's Die Staatslehre des Dante Alighieri
In this article, I reflect on Hans Kelsen's first work, Die Staatslehre des Dante Alighieri, which was written in 1905 while he was still a student. There is no English translation of Die Staatslehre. These "reflections" based on the Italian edition of the book are dedicated to the honour of a scholar and a gentleman, Gordon Anderson.
