Conceptual Confusions and Causal Dynamics

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

It is argued that rules and norms are conceptually distinct. What is norm is not a rule, and vice versa. Versions of conflating the two are discussed and an argument for distinction given. Objections to the argument are responded to. It is accepted that rules and norms are intimately related, but they are so causally, not conceptually. What norms we live by makes a difference to what rules we accept and what rules we accept makes a difference to what norms we live by, in a social, dynamic continuous causal process of development of the social practices of community.
