This introductory chapter summarizes the book as a whole, and distinguishes three different dimensions or conceptions of morality: morality versus immorality, morality versus prudence, and morality versus non-normative factuality. Natural-law theorists who oppose legal positivism by insisting on necessary connections between law and morality have focused on one or more of those dimensions of morality when presenting their arguments.

Keywords:   legal positivism, law, morality, natural law, normativity, jurisprudence
