Example text

For Bergson, human beings are fundamentally artisans and builders, homo fabers who act according to designs. A doctrine of ends strays into illusion when it takes this uncontestable pragmatic doctrine of human ends and action and claims that the universe is likewise oriented. When finalism dialectically extends itself and claims that the universe also operates with ends in mind it falls into the same illusion as mechanism: all is given, only this time in accordance with the realisation of a plan.

In creating the law, either the judge appeals to extra-legal considerations such as policy or personal preference, or else the creation of law happens only by mistake such that the judge suffers a lapse of judgement. Whether creativity is commended or condemned, it is seen as something extrinsic to the law – it becomes something that could, if perhaps only in principle, be eliminated from it (see Lefebvre, 2008). This reduction of creativity to accident or activism seems to me an inadequate characterisation of its role or function in adjudication.

Or, rules are available (actionable, justiciable, appreciable) only from within the context of temporalised interests and reason giving. At this point, I should say that adjudication for Holmes has nothing to do with subsumption. In subsumption, a rule is applied and determines a case. This implies, first, that the rule’s sense is apparent and ready to be applied; second, that the rule preserves its sense before and after its application; and third, that the case is unable to affect a rule beyond instantiating it within a present state of affairs.
