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.

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.
