EVENT: Queen Mary – Law and Normativity: Cross-Disciplinary Dialogues on a Troubled Relation

Posted April 10th, 2017 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘The workshop aims to examine moral, conceptual, and empirical questions about legal normativity, including recent sceptical challenges against the supposed normativity of law. Can legal rules generate reasons to act as they require or only point to, or ‘trigger’, pre-existing reasons? Is it empirically correct that people obey the law, as opposed to merely conforming to it for reasons independent of the law? Does law have any distinct normative significance worthy of academic focus?’
