In Defense of the Standard Picture: The Basic Challenge
In this article I defend what Mark Greenberg has labeled the standard picture of law against the attack on it by Greenberg and Scott Hershovitz. I point out that law on the standard picture's conception of it has moral virtues that Greenberg's own moral impact theory and Hershovitz's similar theory lack. Moreover, it avoids a vicious circularity that bedevils Greenberg's theory.
