Along with globalisation, a revolution in thought is on its way that is about to bring important changes not only in the level and in the content of regulation as well as in the law making process, but also and more deeply, in the shape and in the very nature of legal rules. This paper stresses and to discusses some of the main features of this ongoing revolution. Moreover, it illustrates this new regulatory model with two typical cases which are of peculiar interest namely the issue of global warming and the issue of Internet regulation.
