Chapter abstract: The chapter takes stock of the preceding analyses and assesses Romano’s, Schmitt’s, and Mortati’s institutionalism according to two interpretive axes that are extracted from a systematic reading of their work. Both axes provide an oscillation band across which their theories can be located and their differences appreciated. The first axis is built around conceptions of legal knowledge, and its coordinates are represented by political and juristic views of legal knowledge. The second part of the chapter focuses on the other axis: the relation between social relations and nomic force. In this final part, the chapter makes the case that at the intersection of the two axes it is possible to observe how distinctive and original the contributions of Romano, Schmitt, and Mortati are.

Keywords:   legal knowledge, Luhmann, matter, nomic force, social order
