Example text

Should a person reveal secrets confided by a third party acquaintance to a close friend if those secrets affected the friend adversely? Should a police officer prioritize the value of diversity of race, culture and religion and structure their day to day discretionary powers accordingly, making allowances for minorities; or should an officer strive to treat infractions without regard to these matters? We could go on in this vein, but we pose these questions to ask first whether these and other practical failures affect the definitional status of the objects in question (parent/friend/police officer and so on), and if so, secondly, whether or not these ‘failures’ are failures of duty to one or another person or to a community of persons?

The standards of correctness or rightness in operation need not necessarily be standards of moral correctness or ‘value-laden’ criteria; we can have a normative view of welding or plumbing. But normative judgment must relate to some set of criteria for correctness or rightness. Where a set of phenomena is conceptualized as an aspect of social action embodying or aspiring to a set of ethical, moral or aesthetic values (as, from the point of view of our critical cognitive interests, are all social phenomena) normative theory thus makes what social theorists habitually refer to as value judgments.

But so is the fact that there is much philosophical work to be done to glean what are, essentially, the informal demands of justice. Selznick rightly says, therefore, that before an investigation into a phenomenon takes place it must be identified as such. In other words, we must know from the outset when we correctly speak of law, or famously in Selznick’s work, of ‘management’ or of ‘culture’. Not all rule-guided behaviour, for example, is law; but when is the transition made from a loose form of social organization to a legal system?
