  • On the Centrality of Jurisprudence
    • Authors: Simmonds N.
      Pages: 1 - 18
      Abstract: Political communities typically organize themselves by an appeal to values. Sometimes the values invoked are abstract ideas such as justice or equality. One such idea is that of law. In many important instances, practices cannot be understood except by reference to the values to which they make an implicit appeal but from which they fall short; and, equally, values cannot be understood except by reference to the practices within which they are imperfectly articulated. This general structure is captured by one strand of Platonic and Aristotelian thought, and is exhibited by the character of philosophy itself. Governance by law establishes a form of human association that is characterized by an orientation towards an idealization of its own nature. Consequently, jurisprudential reflection upon the nature of law is a necessary and fundamental feature of communities that aspire to governance by law.

  • Ekins’s Moral Assumptions and Their Impact on the Analysis of
           Legislation
    • Authors: Ferraro F; Zambon A.
      Pages: 19 - 40
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper aims to expound the main ethical and metaethical assumptions in Richard Ekins’s The Nature of Legislative Intent and to examine some of their implications. Firstly, we focus on the notions of nature and of central case, which lead Ekins to appeal to the common good as the end of the legislature. Secondly, we take into consideration the moral norms that, according to Ekins, are implied by the common good and the related idea of human flourishing. Thirdly, we explore how Ekins’s moral cognitivism, objectivism, and internalism influence his conception of legislative reasonableness and rationality, as well as the central case of non-corrupt legislation. Finally, we deal with the rule of interpretation proposed by Ekins, which, again, results (at least partially) from his adoption of the notion of common good. Our general conclusion is that, aside from the problems directly regarding his fundamental notions of central case and of common good, Ekins’s ethical and metaethical assumptions end up affecting negatively his analysis and hindering its adherence to contemporary legal language and to the current problems of legislative decision.

  • The Central Case Method in The Nature of Legislative Intent
    • Authors: Dolcetti A.
      Pages: 41 - 60
      Abstract: AbstractIn The Nature of Legislative Intent, Richard Ekins explores the nature of legislative intent and, in doing so, the nature of the legislature. To approach the nature of the legislature, Ekins employs the central case method. Although there are good reasons to employ this method, the book does not include a full explanation of the methodology that underpins its approach. This article analyses the methodology that supports the identification of the central case of the legislature, with a view to discussing some aspects of Ekins’s understanding of the nature of the legislature. My analysis also raises some questions that suggest new ways to engage with the arguments offered in Ekins’s illuminating study of legislative intent; and future avenues for exploring the nature of the legislature, as an independent object of enquiry and/or as related to our understanding of the nature of law. In the first part of the article, I illustrate John Finnis’s version of the central case method, which is the main source of inspiration for Ekins’s methodology. In the second part, I draw upon these elements to raise some questions about three main aspects of Ekins’s understanding of the nature of the legislature: the relationship between the well-formed legislature and the idea of a good polity; the notion that the well-formed legislature acts for good reasons; and the relationship between the well-formed legislature and the central case of law.

  • More Votes, More Irrationality
    • Authors: Tuzet G.
      Pages: 61 - 78
      Abstract: AbstractThe article addresses the so-called “doctrinal paradox,” or “discursive dilemma,” starting from some historical antecedents and moving to recent accounts (Ekins’s in particular). The paradox affects collective decision-making (by courts, legislatures, etc.) and consists in the risk that a vote on the reasons of a decision contradicts the vote on the outcome. The contributions of the article to the current debate are mainly three: a focus on the hierarchical aspects of the problem, a treatment of it with some logical and argumentative tools like the burden of proof, and a pragmatist argument which favors the method of voting on the outcome. This goes against a significant body of scholarly work that praises the method of voting on reasons.

  • Ekins on Groups and Procedures
    • Authors: Roversi C; Sardo A.
      Pages: 79 - 103
      Abstract: AbstractRichard Ekins’s argument, developed in his The Nature of Legislative Intent, rests on four pillars: a socio-ontological conception based on a theory of how groups act; a theory of language use; an explanatory attempt, namely, a descriptive account of the nature of the legislative process; and, finally, a normative account of a legislature’s authority. In this paper, we will focus on Ekins’s socio-ontological perspective and argue that, though Ekins’s use of socio-ontological tools to address the nature of legislative intent is undoubtedly innovative, his approach in this regard does not necessarily bring him to the conclusion he argues for. In the first part of the paper, drawing on John Searle and Raimo Tuomela, we will show that a socio-ontological approach to legislatures does not necessarily entail that the nature of legislatures is best accounted for in terms of groups. In the second part of the paper, drawing on Michael Bacharach’s group-centered approach to game theory, we will argue that a different socio-ontological approach works better on explanatory grounds. Hence—this will be our conclusion—Ekins’s socio-ontological assumptions, taken alone, cannot do the work they are assigned.

  • The Legislative Assembly and Representative Deliberation
    • Authors: Valentini C.
      Pages: 105 - 123
      Abstract: AbstractIn The Nature of Legislative Intent, Richard Ekins presents the legislative assembly as “a representative and deliberative body” and claims that “the assembly’s standing in relation to the community supports, rather than frustrates, its capacity to make reasoned choices through deliberation.” After providing an outline of Ekins’s view of the legislative assembly, I address this claim. First (1), I focus on the assembly as a representative body to answer the following question: What kind of representative relation holds between the assembly and the community' Second (2), I consider the assembly as a deliberative body to answer the following question: How does the representative relation between the assembly and the community bear on law-making and, more specifically, on the assembly’s capacity to make reasoned choices through deliberation' On the basis of my answers to these questions, I then (3) set out two challenges that emerge from Ekins’s account of the assembly and (4) conclude.

  • Pragmatic Aspects of Legislative Intent
    • Authors: Canale D; Poggi F.
      Pages: 125 - 138
      Abstract: AbstractIn The Nature of Legislative Intent Richard Ekins presents a theory of legislation that reaffirms the centrality of legislative intent in the understanding of law-making and legal interpretation. One of the distinctive aspects of Ekins’s account is that legislation is conceived as a form of conversational communication through which intentional contents are conveyed to law-addressees. In the paper we first consider the way in which Ekins addresses the traditional problems that the concept of legislative intent gives rise to: the ontological problem (do legislatures have intentions') and the epistemic problem (how can legislative intentions be identified'). Then we examine whether the conversational model is able to provide a convincing answer to these problems. To do this, the paper focuses on Paul Grice’s account of conversational communication and on some implications of it for the analysis of legislation and legal interpretation.

  • Intentions and Reflections: The Nature of Legislative Intent Revisited
    • Authors: Ekins R.
      Pages: 139 - 162
      Abstract: AbstractThis article reflects on the argument of The Nature of the Legislative Intent, replying in part to thoughtful comments and criticisms made by contributors to this symposium. The reply opens by considering the methodology that underpins the book and the choices made in its deployment. The focus on the central case of legislative action is grounded in sound philosophy, which recognizes the explanatory priority of good reasons over bad. Reflecting on the moral need for legislation helps to articulate the internal point of view of the reasonable legislator, from which perspective the structure of legislative action is made clear. Likewise, reflection on the social ontology of group action confirms that legislators are able to act jointly to make reasoned choices together despite disagreeing about what ought to be done. The legislative assembly represents the people, leading and sharpening a public conversation about the common good. In enacting a statute, the legislature articulates a lawmaking choice by uttering the statutory text in its context. Interpreters can and should infer the legislature’s intentions in enactments and skepticism about the relevance of legislative intentions to statutory interpretation is unwarranted.
