Limits of didactic abstraction versus positivism in the hermeneutic method as a legal research system at the university level

The university student is a continuous reader of the law, but must know the resources that legal research has in order to get as close as possible to the correct interpretation. The objective of this research is to describe the characteristics of the hermeneutic method, highlighting the properties of abstraction as an epistemological system of interpretation of legal norms and principles. Within the methodological aspect, 10 third-level theses of university students from the University of Guayaquil and the Laica Vicente Rocafuerte University of Guayaquil are chosen. It uses the descriptive method, in order to establish the advantages and disadvantages of the interpretation.
