Wishes and desires are relevant to practical reasoning in a way that they are not relevant to theoretical reasoning’; Harman, ‘Rationality’ in Harman, Reasoning, Meaning, Truth 14. Theoretical and Practical Reason 17 When Hart revisited the methodological issues left open in The Concept of Law, he repeated that analytical jurisprudence is descriptive, even if what it describes is an evaluation. We should read this to mean, I believe, that jurisprudence belongs in principle to theoretical reason.
They use a process of construction in order to build a ﬁner concept or a better theory. Hart’s suggestion is that some constructions can still be descriptive in nature. Many leading legal philosophers have sought to outline ways in which this is possible, but all such attempts fail. ¹ Approaches to law will diﬀer both according to the type of explanation they oﬀer (explanans) and in the subject matter they take to be exploring (explanandum). The sociology of law, for example, is interested in law as a social phenomenon in its most directly empirical sense.

This causal explanation reveals that the function of law is to guide persons and that without the rule of recognition this function fails. ¹⁸ In fact, this quasi-evolutionary account of law is very sketchy and surprisingly incomplete. Coleman does not oﬀer any historical or other empirical evidence in support of the evolutionary hypothesis. The causal connection seems, in fact, entirely false. Legal positivism is a recent construct.
