Disclaimers and Reassertions
This chapter recapitulates some of the principal ideas developed in the preceding six chapters, with particular emphasis on the fact that legal positivists deny the existence of any significant necessary connections between law and morality but do not deny the existence of numerous contingent connections between those two phenomena. It also lays the groundwork for Chapter 9 by emphasizing that the moral status of a legal system hinges crucially on its moral superiority or inferiority to other legal systems that are reasonably attainable.
