    This article discusses one of the contemporary American theories on interpretation, i.e. plain meaning originalism. The propagator and co-author of this theory is Antonin Scalia – Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United State. Scalia’s originalism is a doctrine about how judges ought to interpret statutes and constitution according to their original meaning. Therefore we can define it with textualism based on language competence of the primary legislator and primary addressees. Originalism uses interpretative, language and system directives. In general it refuses using function and purposefulness. What determines the meaning of law is legal codes and tradition. According to Scalia law does not change automatically together with changes of social needs and expectations. He criticizes the concept of “living constitution” regarding it as a source of judicial discretionality. Members of parliament, elected in a democratic voting, should update the law, not judges.
