Example text

3 This is why I had suggested replacing the notion of legal pluralism by that of “normative plurality” (Dupret, 1999). Law and Morality: Constructs and Models 33 Malinowski, Parsons, and Luhman are, according to Tamanaha (1997: 106), the main representatives of the functionalist approach to law. These authors fundamentally share the idea that: 1) law has a role and a nature; 2) this role and this nature are determined a priori by their social function; 3) this function is to maintain social order.

There are therefore “general and fundamental maxims of law”, which may not enjoy the status of rules, and yet provide a legal basis for the judge’s decision. In this way, law is made up of various normative components, with principles that are ultimately, according to Ricoeur (1995: 170), ethical-legal in nature. These principles are not univocal in and of themselves and, in consequence, must be interpreted. They have a weight and appropriateness that must be evaluated every time. In sum, Dworkin’s theory emancipates law from the condition that it be issued by a legitimate authority, takes into consideration legal practice as it has unfolded historically, and situates law on a political horizon; in this way, it brings morality back home as an instance of the legal.

Questions about law and morality followed the same course as the general evolution of the social sciences and, in particular, of research into norms. While the fundamental question was initially about the connection between positive law and substantive morality, this was progressively transformed into an investigation into relations between positive law and procedural rationality: Until this shift [from substantive morality to procedural rationality], the connection between positive law and morality was always seen in substantive terms, in the sense that the key was law’s consistency with the content of moral norms.
