This chapter attempts to relate the picture of legal theory here developed to wider issues in both metaphysical and political theory, in order to show how the local conflicts in legal theory considered have deeper roots in wider global conflicts. These wider considerations will compete and strengthen the argument for the inevitability of the movements of legal thought between the poles of Norm and Nature.

Keywords: legal theory; law; norm; nature
