This paper seeks to show a connection between epistemic facets of human language and political aspects of law. It will be tried to show how concepts, which have epistemic functions in the language system, may have both an evaluative and founding function in the legal system of the EU. Thanks to the circular relation “system of concepts-system of language-system of law”, the latter will be capable of adapting to the development of the social community in which it belongs, i.e. the European Union. In addition to this, the aforesaid relation would also allow the legal system to cooperate in the improvement of its (European) milieu.
