Luhmann does not claim that there is no external reality, but that our knowledge of it will always be subject to the symbolic system we use to represent it. There is no doubt that the text dates back at least to the reign of the Frankish king Dagobert I, i.e. to the first half of the 7th century.

For example, Professor Geoffrey Blainey stated: Strehlow argues that it is too late to recognise Aboriginal tribal law because we do not know enough about that law ... But that toward which a nature has always an essential bent is a good; for it is an inclination toward perfection. Usul al-fiqh, or sources of law, define the principles and methods on which it is based. It was unfortunate for Grotius that he gave little or no heed to the circumstances which the Scholastics had always stressed: the circumstances and conditions which in the case of the affirmative precepts of the ius naturae determine the application of a norm that in itself is unchangeable. (Suarez says, for instance, that obedience to the state in time of war takes precedence over the natural-law duty of a son to care for his parents.) The Scholastics had held that only the first principle of the natural law is clearly evident, and that at most the immediate Edition: current; Page: [65] conclusions (the Decalogue) share in such evidence, which, however, may yet be obscured by the passions.

S. states maintain separate courts of equity. Procedural law also reflects the same heritage in the maritime attachment, an admiralty application of the saisie conservatoire of traditional civil law. And even when this would be possible, all judges have their own personal experiences and qualities, so they will interpret the same facts differently. An obligation can only be upheld and enforced against one person, namely against the debtor who has to fulfil the performance.

A Dworkinian might attempt to refute this claim by arguing actual judges are incapable of discerning the original public meaning of the Constitution; in the actual world, the argument might go, judges and justices lack both the historical chops and the capacity to set aside their own preferences. In other words, freedom rights are now legally guaranteed against the intrusion of political rulers, who are held to economic laissez-faire policies. But this position did not rest on a comparison of the Soviet view of marriage with the marriage law of the French Civil Code, or with the matrimonium of Roman law, or with the marriage legislation of Germany or of the Anglo-Saxon countries.

But even these Herculean judges cannot actually produce a theory that fits and justifies all of the law—that would take longer than a human lifespan permits and most of the work would be terribly dull. Public education, outreach and monitoring are essential to facilitating compliance with this requirement. (See: Marriage Vows Not Always Enough in Tajikistan, Institute for War and Peace Reporting, 2009) For example, the Tajik President issued an oral instruction to amend a 2007 Law on Traditions that would require mullahs to require a civil marriage certificate before performing a nikoh marriage.
