Abstract: At first sight it would seem that law and morals have structurally got so little in common that a complete separation of the two is desirable. On the one hand, morality depends for its very existence on the free choice of the individual: on the other hand, law involves the imposition ab extra of the norm of a society, even where this goes against the wishes of an individual. Morality is essentially concerned with the subject's free personal choice: whereas law is something external to the subject's wishes, so much so that it requires enforcement.
