The scientific realisation of man's centrality in the network of co-dependent natural entities (“prima ontologia”) is certainly one of the realisations of the natural, cosmic law, the “divine nomos” (“nomos theios”), i.e., law which throughout the history of the western man has provided the criteria and norms for human behaviour. A principle of organization, procedure, or technique: the laws of grammar; the laws of visual perspective. The connection between feel-good catchphrases and political slogans on the one hand, and philosophy as an academic discipline on the other, is very remote indeed.

He settled down first at Mathura and then at Varanasi. But this is implausible, since legal practice in fact is rife with disagreement about what the grounds of law are (and thus, what counts as law or as legal).

The Obama Department of Defense abruptly announced that it would stop selling once-fired brass to ammunition manufacturers--a move which threatened to substantially worsen the current shortage of ammunition for citizens. Perhaps historical investigation is not the only way in which we might come to know whether or not Jesus existed. These Gunas are not the Nyaya-Vaiseshika Gunas.

I said too that even if one could defend focusing purely on the rules themselves, a philosophy of law would still be impoverished if it paid no attention to the defining role of law’s aspiration to coherence among the norms that it contains and to the forms of reasoned argumentation that are involved both in maintaining that consistency and in bringing it to bear in the application of norms to particular cases.
