Radbruch hat als Kulturphilosoph staats- und demokratietheoretische Fragen rechtsphilosophisch durchdacht. Seine Rechtsphilosophie duldet nicht nur Widersprüche, sondern setzt sie voraus. Das von ihm aufgestellte Konzept eines demokratischen Parteienstaates ist ein komplexes Bild des Parlamentarismus. Mit realistischem Zugriff und dem Verzicht auf idealistische Demokratie- oder Repräsentationsvorstellungen konnte er den Parlamentarismus in seinem Eigenwert und seinen Möglichkeiten darstellen, ohne die notwendigen Voraussetzungen auszuklammern.
