Example text

Hence the content of a norm is a necessary but not a sufficient condition of what is subjectively right. Again: “Subjectively” is used to say that actual persons, or subjects, are involved because they are referred to by the content of a norm applicable to them. Felice Battaglia (1902–1977), a professor of mine when I was an undergraduate law student, would use a geometric metaphor to illustrate the connection between what is objectively right and what is subjectively right: What is objectively right (norms) is likened to the circumference of a circle, and what is subjectively right (rights and obligations) to the circle closed in by the circumference.

Any square brackets in the original are labelled as such (as “square brackets in original,” which points out omissions or additions made by the author being quoted, rather than by the author who is doing the quoting). Italicised text, instead, is labelled only when it is not in the original, as “italics added” (all unlabelled italics are therefore to be understood as occurring that way in the original). Both practices (“square brackets in original,” “italics added”) are standard. Exceptions to the italics rule occur when a Treatise contributor has felt it necessary to make a point by stating that certain italicised text matter is not his own doing.

However, by saying that a certain item of behaviour is to be engaged in because this is what the law or the sovereign “calls for” or “commands,” a jurist will fail on two accounts: (a) in explaining what “ought” means and (b) in providing reasons why anyone should behave in the manner specified by the Ought. As for point (a), until we limit ourselves to saying that norms pertain to the world of Ought, we will not explicitly have said what norms are, what they are made of, what entities they are.
