(p.85) 5 Legality, Morality, and the Guiding Function of Law
The Legacy of H.L.A. Hart

W J Waluchow

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues in favour of Inclusive Legal Positivism and against Exclusive Legal Positivism. It maintains that philosophers in the latter camp are inconsistent when they propound their account of constitutional adjudication while also claiming that the role of law in guiding human conduct is something that cannot be accommodated by Inclusive Legal Positivism.

Keywords:   inclusive legal positivism, exclusive legal positivism, adjudication, morality, law
