Positive Law and Natural Law: Han Feizi, Hobbes, and Habermas

This essay is devoted to a comparative study of three philosophers’ views on the relationship between positive law and natural law. It intends to ask whether obligations which positive laws impose, rights which positive laws define, and justice which positive laws are supposed to realize have a natural basis, and whether our reflection and judgment of good positive laws have some cognitive and normative constraints.
