January 27:   Les Green (Oxford, Faculty of Law)

 “The Normativity of Law: What’s the Problem?”

3:30 pm to 5:00 pm  ** Held in BSB 108**

Abstract: Legal and political philosophers have long debated how to explain the normativity of law.  But ‘normativity’, unlike ‘justice’ or ‘equality’,  is a purely technical, philosophical, concept.  In this Lecture I disambiguate several senses of ‘normative’  as that term is actually used, and argue that an adequate account of one may not help us with the others.  “Normative’ is the most equivocal, and least useful, concept in contemporary legal philosophy.
