Pliny the Younger (or Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus)said ?Prosperity tries the fortunate, adversity the great' This quote is in opposition to the thoughts of Hans Kelsen in his book Pure Theory of Law.

Hans Kelsen developed one of its main theories on the state and thus became one of the great thinkers of the contemporary law. Hans Kelsen was an Austrian jurist of the twentieth century. He has contributed significantly in building the right science, following the movement and social sciences from the early twentieth century. His contribution in the field of law is paramount.

He is the founder of the normative and the principle of the pyramid of norms and belonged to the movement of legal positivism (the reason for intervention in the production of legal norms in the tradition Universalist Enlightenment). This movement, considers the positive law as the only legitimate standard, claims to describe the law with all its reality. The Pure Theory of Law, published for the first time in 1934, aimed to provide a knowledge of the law, it seeks to define its purpose legally and what concepts 'should be' under the law. In this book, Kelsen has answers to all the questions put forward by his contemporaries.

Kelsen opposed the popular beliefs relating to the state. And he puts forward questions about the nature of the State: What is a state? he asks. He explored the ideas and listed their shortcomings.
In the first part of this paper we explore Kelson's views of the concept of a "civil state"

Kelsen, in the beginning of his work, presents the questions put forward by his opponents. Kelsen refuses to question the relevance of a state is because the question is really whether the State is an individual and the answer to that is no.
