Abstract : In Egyptian law, the notion of the person is formulated in statute law, used in case-law, and practiced in what is called -law in action-. It is closely associated with the concept of legal capacity and incapacity. This article concentrates on legal practices related to the person as they emerge from actual legal interactions in judicial contexts. This will lead to propose a praxiological approach to the norm, the law, and the following of a rule. Such praxiological sociology allows to observe law, i.e. both language and action, as it actually operates and this in turn makes possible the contextual understanding of the many categories which are used in legal settings, in a way that tries neither to provide analytical constructs running against the many knowledges of law nor to provide definitions of what law is which would be alternative to professionals- and laypeople-s.
