Three lectures by the Harvard Law School professor examinelegal positivism and natural law. In the course of hisanalysis, Fuller discusses Kelsen's theory as a reactionarytheory, and Hobbes' theory of sovereignty. He defines legalpositivism as the viewpoint that draws a distinction"between the law that is and the law that ought to be..."and interprets natural law as that which tolerates acombination of the two. He looks at the effects ofpositivism's continued influence on American legal thinkingand concludes that law as a principle of order is necessaryin a democracy.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
