Is the normative content of a law entirely determined by the facts that make it a law? Are there some normative moral constraints (...)

    On the Practical Philosophy of Law.Yongliu Zheng - 2019 - Archiv Fuer Rechts Und Sozialphilosphie 105 (4):508-522.
    Practical philosophy of law is a theory about concrete existence of law which holds that due to the asymmetry between existing law and social facts and case facts, the existing law needs to be developed in a reflective manner through application and this is the inevitable process of mutation from law 1.0 to law 2.0. Practical philosophy of law is founded on the generative thinking of practical philosophy, and distinct from other philosophies of law hereof.
