This entry considers natural law theories only as theories of law. That is not to say that legal theory can be adequately identified and pursued independently of moral and political theory. Nor is it to deny that there are worthwhile natural law theories much more concerned with foundational issues in ethics and political theory than with law or legal theory. Natural law theorists, on the other hand, did not conceive their theories in opposition to, or even as distinct from, legal positivism contra Soper at Natural law theory accepts that law can be considered and spoken of both as a sheer social fact of power and practice, and as a set of reasons for action that can be and often are sound as reasons and therefore normative for reasonable people addressed by them. But because legal theories conceived of by their authors as positivist are, by and large, dominant in the milieux of those likely to be reading this entry, it seems appropriate to refer to those theories along the way, in the hope of overcoming misunderstandings that while stimulating certain clarifications and improvements of natural law theorizing have generated some needless debate.

Universal epistemic validity : the scientific-critical approach holds not only for inquiries into the realm of causally connected facts, but also for those concerning the realm of norms and values.
Positive laws Latin: ius positum are human-made laws that oblige or specify an action. Positive law also describes the establishment of specific rights for an individual or group. Etymologically, the name derives from the verb to posit. The concept of positive law is distinct from " natural law ", which comprises inherent rights, conferred not by act of legislation but by "God, nature, or reason.

Natural Law is said to have three sets of principles: a set of principles that direct human choice and action toward intelligible purposes; another set of intermediate moral principles that specify the most basic principles of morality by directing choice and action that is driven by a will toward integral human fulfilment; and finally, a set of fully specific moral norms that prescribes specific possible choices to be required or forbidden. This chapter talks about Natural Law, and how it shapes human choice and action.
