The Practice of Principle


Oxford University Press

This chapter distinguishes between two different but related issues pertaining to the nature of legal authority. The first concerns the existence conditions of law and thus the possibility conditions of legal authority: how is legal governance possible? The second concerns the nature or kind of governance law purports to provide. It then addresses a third set of questions, one that concerns the conditions, if any, under which the reasons of law purports to create are moral reasons.

Keywords:   legal authority, conditions of law, legal governance, reasons of law, moral reasons
