Example text

Locke’s account of prerogative authority is highly ambiguous, the manifestation of a profound normative instability in his theory. The ambiguity comes about because Locke vacillates in his answer to the question whether the executive, personified in the figure of the prince, exercises the 15 16 Dicey, Law of the Constitution, p. 289. J. Locke, Two Treatises on Government, P. ) (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1988), p. 375. 17 If it is the former, then it seems that the authority comes not from his official position, but from whether he handles the emergency appropriately, an authority which depends on his moral character, and thus, ultimately on the political constitution.

Or it requires a move to an external normativity, but one which is existential, which is to say unanchored in liberal democratic values. In respect of internal normativity, the commitment to the normativity of law entails that jurists proceed as if law’s claim to authority can be vindicated. Thus, for example, lawyers for the Bush administration and judges sympathetic to its policies, notably Justice Thomas of the USA Supreme Court, do not argue that the Bush administration has authority to act ultra vires – beyond the limits of the law – in its ‘war on terror’.

Fuller, The Morality of Law, rev. edn (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1969). I do not consider Gustav Radbruch’s position to be a natural law one. Rather, as I have argued elsewhere, it is positivism with a minus sign – law is positive law with the exception of extremely unjust laws that do not count as law because of their violation of criteria for injustice external to law. See D. Dyzenhaus, ‘The Dilemma of Legality and the Moral Limits of Law’, in A. Sarat, L. M. ), The Limits of Law (Stanford: Stanford University Press, 2005), p.
