PERAN QUESADA, Salvador. Capablanca’s Paradox and Sources of Law. Rev. Fac. Der. [online]. 2018, n.45, pp.235-261. ISSN 0797-8316.

Abstract: There are many stories behind the thirty―two pieces dialectically confronted in the sixty―four squares of the chessboard, many of them closely related to legal thought. The Law is present in chess, becouse imperative rules determine the valid or legal movements of the pieces. Chess is present in Law, becouse Law is a logical and strategic phenomenon. The metaphorical power of chess to explain the legal phenomenon has been reflected in some of the most important texts of Philosophy of law. Acording with that tradition, we will take a fantasy composition by José Raúl Capablanca to reflect on the sources of law and its application to each specific case

Keywords : Didactic chess; sources of law; teaching metaphor.
