Abstract

Law’s ‘normativity’, its capacity to impose obligations, is among the great mysteries of jurisprudence; or so the bulk of the literature dedicated to the topic strongly suggests. As mysteries typically do, the mystery of law’s ‘normativity’ (if there is indeed such a thing) derives from various sources. One of them (and one of major importance) is the question as to the interrelation of facts and norms.
