According to the classic theory of Bobbio and Nino, natural law theories hold two main theses. The first has a conceptual nature and is centered around the concept of law and the necessary relation between law andmorality. The second is a metaethical thesis about the objectivity of moral values. As Viola argues, after the revolution in theory offered by Finnis, today’s natural law theory presents itself as an ethical theory based on a normative concept of nature and of reasonable justice, rather than as a theory of morality. The current contrast between legal positivists and natural law theorists seems mainly ideological and partly ontological.
