Rediscovering Fuller: Essays on Implicit Law and Institutional Design (Chicago: Chicago University Press). 1 We need a philosophic awakening that will put law in its proper place in the human struggle to achieve order and justice ... a part of the eternal quest for those principles that will enable us to live and work together in harmony. 2 Reading the efforts of Lon Fuller and Karl Llewellyn today, one cannot help but be struck by how different jurisprudence looked in their hands.

Legislation is useful to the positivists because it holds out the possibility of a legal instrument that is not only tangible, but neatly enclosed. It becomes easy, then, to insist on the separation of law and morality; that is, the complete separation of the legal instrument from its social source and environment. This leads, thirdly, to the insistence that legislation operates mechanically for the most part, leaving little or no role for discretion and the exercise of judgement on the part of officials.

This organic connection with an underlying way of life is, we might say, the hallmark of true legality, with a legal system understood to be genuine or authentic only to the degree to which it reflects a reciprocal relationship, subtle and pervasive, between the governed and those who govern. Of course, readers may well find this talk of order that is natural and organic singularly unhelpful. Such statements are everywhere in Fuller’s work, and, as we have seen, many have struggled to make sense of his ideas.
