Natural Law Theories (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

21.086.4176 hours ago

1. The sense and force of these questions, and the main features of the kind of answer given by natural law theories, can be given a preliminary indication. On the one hand, natural law theory holds that law's source-based characterits dependence upon social facts such as legislation, custom or judicially established precedentsis a fundamental and primary element in law's capacity to advance the common good, to secure human rights, or to govern with integrity (cf. Green 2003). On the other hand (again cf. Green 2003), the question whether law is of its very nature morally problematic has from the outset been the subject of consideration by leaders of the tradition. (The first issue that Aquinas takes up about human law in his set-piece discussion of law, Summa Theologiae, I-II, q. 95 a. 1, is whether human law [positive law] is beneficialmight we not do better with exhortations and warnings, or with judges appointed simply to do justice, or with wise leaders ruling as they see fit? And see I.3 below.) Classic and leading contemporary texts of natural law theory treat law as morally problematic, understanding it as a normally indispensable instrument of great good but one that readily becomes an instrument of great evil unless its authors steadily and vigilantly make it good by recognizing and fulfilling their moral duties to do so, both in settling the content of its rules and principles and in the procedures and institutions by which they make and administer it. Natural law theories all understand law as a remedy against the great evils of, on the one side anarchy (lawlessness), and on the other side tyranny. And one of tyranny's characteristic forms is the co-optation of law as a mask for fundamentally lawless decisions cloaked in the forms of law and legality. If one thinks perceptively and carefully about what to pursue (or shun) and do (or forbear from), one can readily understand and assent to practical propositions such as that life and health, knowledge, and harmony with other people are desirable for oneself and anyone else. The intrinsic desirability of such states of affairs as one's flourishing in life and health, in knowledge and in friendly relations with others, is articulated in foundational, underived principles of practical reasoning (reasoning towards choice and action). Such first principles of practical reasoning direct one to actions and dispositions and arrangements that promote such intelligible goods, and that directiveness or normativity is expressed by I should or I ought in senses which although truly normative are only incipiently moral. Thomas Aquinas' account of human positive law treats the central case of government as the self-government of a free people by the rulers and institutions which that people has appointed for that purpose, and the central case of law is the co-ordination of willing subjects by law which, by its public character (promulgation), clarity, generality, stability and practicability, treats those subjects as partners in public reason (Summa Theologiae I-II q. 90 a. 4c; q. 95 a. 3c; q. 96 a. 1; q. 97 a. 2). For he defines law as universal (in the logician's sense of universal) practical propositions conceived in the reason of the ruler(s) and communicated to the reason of the ruled so that the latter will treat those propositions, at least presumptively, as reasons for actionreasons as decisive for each of them as if each had conceived and adopted them by personal judgment and choice. Once the determinatio is validly made, fulfilling the criteria of validity provided by or under the relevant legal system's constitutional law, it changes the pre-existing state of the law by introducing a new or amended legal rule and proposition(s) of law. The new or amended legal rule gives judges, other officials, and citizens a new or amended reason for action (or forbearance). The fact that the new or amended rule depends upon the social-fact source constituted or employed by the act of determinatio does not entail that a normative reason (an ought) is being illogically derived from a bare fact (an is). Rather, the new or amended rule is normative, directive and (where that is its legal meaning ) obligatory because that social fact can be the second premise in a practical syllogism whose first premise is normative: there ought to be a maternity hospital in this town, people ought to be protected against homicidal assault, people ought to be required to contribute to the public expenses of appropriate governmental functions, victims of assault, theft, broken contracts, negligence, etc., ought to be compensated, road traffic should be regulated to reduce damaging collisions, and so forth. The moral normativity of the principle is replicated in the more specified rule created by the determinatio, even though the latter is not an entailment of the former. Natural law theory concurs with Raz and Gardner in rejecting the inclusivist restriction as ungrounded, but dissents from them in holding (as Dworkin does too: Dworkin 1978, 47) that any moral rule or principle which a court is bound or authorized to apply, precisely as a court, can reasonably be counted or acknowledged as a law, i.e., as a rule or principle which should be considered already part of our law. Against positivists generally, it holds that (i) little or nothing turns on whether or not moral principles binding on courts precisely as courts should be called part of our law; but (ii) if something does turn on the nameif, for example, it be recalled that courts cannot take judicial notice of any rule or principle not part of our law (and so, as in respect of rules of foreign law, have to hear evidence of the rule's existence and content)it is sounder to say that judicially applicable moral rules and principles (unlike applicable foreign law) are ipso iure (i.e., precisely as morally and judicially applicable) rules of law. Such rules belong to the ius gentium portion of our law. In line with Dworkin's two-dimensions account (thus qualified), natural law theory will assent to the thesis that Green makes characteristic of legal positivism:

1. If natural law is born of the Greeks, it comes of age with the Roman Catholic Church. Perhaps the most famous of natural law theorists is St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274). According to Aquinas’s theology, natural law is integral to divine providence. “Eternal law” is the overarching law, established by God, which gives order to the chaos of creation. The portion of eternal law pertaining to human beings is, to Aquinas, natural law. Unlike other natural bodies (earth and animals for instance), humans are not determined by natural law. Instead, God has instilled in us our sense of rationality. With this reason we apprehend and participate in His eternal law if we so choose. Like the Stoics, then, Aquinas thinks that lucid reasoning is the means by which to discern universal moral truth and, by acting in accordance with it, fulfill our destinies (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2002).

It does not refer to the laws of nature, the laws that science aims to describe. According to natural law moral theory, the moral standards that govern human behavior are, in some sense, objectively derived from the nature of human beings and the nature of the world.

The Pure Theory of Law (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Just Now

1. The main challenge for a theory of law, as Kelsen saw it, is toprovide an explanation of legality and the normativity of law, withoutan attempt to reduce jurisprudence, or “legal science”, toother domains. The law, Kelsen maintained, is basically a scheme ofinterpretation. Its reality, or objectivity, resides in the sphere ofmeaning; we attach a legal-normative meaning to certain actions andevents in the world (PT1, 10). Suppose, for example, that a new law isenacted by the California legislature. How is it done? Presumably, somepeople gather in a hall, debate the issue, eventually raise their handsin response to the question of whether they approve a certain documentor not, count the number of people who say “yes”, and thenpromulgate a string of words, etc. Now, of course, the actions andevents described here are not the law. To say that the description isof the enactment of a new law is to interpret these actions and eventsin a certain way. But then, of course, the question is why...

Human behavior may be solely reliant upon the environment that one is exposed to, which includes social classes, education and upbringing, this opposes the theory.

Why is this book called the Pure Theory of natural law?

Because this book is about the natural law of the human world1, we shall focus on the natural order of human persons rather than the natural order of such things as particles, atoms and molecules, physical states, cells, organs, and life forms such as plants, insects, molluscs, birds and mammals other than those of the human species.

What's the difference between positive law and natural law?

And such law is binding on all members of the society or state. On the other hand, the Natural Theory of Law is a philosophical and legal belief that all humans govern themselves by basic innate laws. Or laws of nature. Which are separate and distinct from the legislated laws. This theory is somewhat an opposite of the positive law theory.

Are there different versions of the natural law?

Though there are different versions of natural law theory, all subscribe to the thesis that there are at least some laws that depend for their “authority” not on some pre-existing human convention, but on the logical relationship in which they stand to moral standards.
