Unspeakable Ethics, Unnatural Law, 1979 DUKE L.J. 1229 (1979)

Abstract

My plan for this Article, then, is as follows. I shall first try to
prove to your satisfaction that there cannot be any normative system ultimately based on anything except human will. I shall then try to
trace some of the scars left on recent jurisprudential writings by this
growing, and apparently terrifying, realization. Finally, I shall say a
few things about-of all things-law and the way in which the impossibility
of normative grounding necessarily shapes attitudes toward constitutional
interpretation.
