Example text

18 Mark C. Murphy view that is formulated as the claim that law’s existence does not depend on facts about good reasons for action is a false view. 39 If you think that facts about law’s existence do not depend on facts about good reasons for action, then your view of what law exists should not be altered a whit by the supposition that an utter and uncompromising nihilism is the truth about reasons for action. There is more than one way to resist here. One way is to hold that while a weak natural law thesis is part of the answer to the Identity Question, the natural law theorist is wrong to think that the weak natural law thesis explains the other conditions for law via hypothetical necessity; rather, these are simply independent conditions conjoined.

If I fashion a Pointless Doomsday Device that destroys all living things, but only when doing so would have no point, it is a bad Pointless Doomsday Device if it fails to generate the right sort of destruction in those circumstances. This badness is obviously not any sort of moral badness, or indeed any badness from a relevant practical perspective, for from every reasonable practical point of view it is better if the machine works badly than if it works well. I hope that this is enough on the notion of defect.
