Instrumentinio požiūrio į teisę absoliutinimas ir jo kritika.
Positivist law should have a coherently dualistic nature: one oriented towards values and the other towards norms. However, in cases of the social deterioration of values, legislators can turn the law into an artificial mechanism of the production of social order, thus putting emphasis on the instrumental approach to law. The present article questions the unlimited authority of the instrumental approach to law and analyzes the social premises and consequences of its prevalence in consumer society and the limits of its development. The article aims to show the dangers the unlimited authority of the instrumental approach to law may entail for the values that law postulates in the first place.
