Law and Order: Some Implications
This closing chapter takes up the question whether every legal mandate, simply by dint of its status as such a mandate, imposes a pro-tanto moral obligation to comply with its terms. In delivering a negative answer to this question, the chapter first mounts a critique of the principle of fair play. It then shows that there is no comprehensively applicable pro-tanto moral obligation of obedience, even in an admirably benign legal system.
