Summary note:
The Devlin-Hart-Dworkin correspondence on ‘the enforcement of morals by the law’ circles around declaring either popular opinion or elite morality as law. But this perpetual circularity can be entirely avoided when focusing on three key principles: the empathy principle, the principle of rationality and sanity, and the principle of co-reactivity.
