This chapter analyzes two conceptions of legal defeasibility, propounded by Carlos Alchourrón in his last works. It rejects the plausibility of one of them — the ‘dispositional account’ — which turns out to have some radically sceptical consequences for legal interpretation.

Keywords: legal defeasibility; Carlos Alchourrón; dispositional account
