The Varieties of Positivism, 90 Yale Law Journal 1007 (1981)

Abstract

Positivism is an idea that has generated a great deal of confusion, even exasperation. Stumped, especially by these papers, Professor Robert Gordon announced that he had "come to the conclusion that a positivist is someone who sounds very positive." Part of the confusion stems from the fact that positivism is both a theory of ethics and a theory of knowledge and that both versions of positivism are present in the law.
