Sumario:The interest of Carl Schmitt in the first years of XXI century becomes increasingly evident, especially in authors who try to renew the liberal tradition appealing to the arguments of this polemical author. Despite the common place that Schmitt means, his general acknowledgement comes along with a kind of stigmatization difficult to overcome, with which he is sometimes classified as "accomplice" of the Nazism tragedy. In this article a reflexion is presented around the comprehension that Carl Schmitt had about law. In such analysis, a hermeneutic method of study of Schmitt's first work is used: his habilitation thesis in 1914. The article lets us see that many of the elements of the Schmitt's political philosophy in total are defined in this first work, which ideologically fits to the bourgeois-conservator knowledge better than to the Nazism fundamentals.
