Sample text

For Hart, an unjust law is still a law; because it is unjust, there is no obligation to obey it, but preserving its quality as a law has the advantage of forcing us to ask whether or not it is just, and therefore of developing moral sensibility. One might note here that the internal morality of law according to Fuller is procedural above all, and void of substantive content. It affirms the role of reason alone in legal ordering. This procedural rationality, however, does not lack affinities with moral good or substantive justice, which are legal principles that contribute to humanity’s realization of its moral goals and objectives (Fuller, 1969: 205).

318). It is possible to argue, nevertheless, that, even though Tamanaha’s approach vastly improves the possibility of a sociological and anthropological study of law, it suffers from defects that could be attenuated by taking its intuitions further and adopting a praxeological perspective. The main problem with Tamanaha’s conception of law results from his attempt to root it in a mixture of behaviorism and interpretivism. One of the difficulties in interpretivism is its culturalist and essentialist perspective.

Although he challenged Austin’s theory of command, Hart sought to maintain a moderate positivist understanding of law. He therefore defined legal positivism as an expression of the thesis according to which it is not at all necessarily true that rules of law reflect or satisfy certain moral exigencies, although in reality they have often done so (Hart, 1961: 224). What was at stake, therefore, was the need to demonstrate that no necessary relation existed between law and morality. Legal and moral obligations might indeed share certain characteristics: obligation is independent of the will of the individual who submits to it; obligation is recurrent, not occasional; obligation bears on the exigencies of collective life.
