Max Weber on Natural Justice - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas III 355
Natural Law/Weber/Habermas: Weber describes the rationality of modern law in such a way that the procedural rational use of legal organizational means is in the foreground. This is shown by his interpretation of rational natural law.
Habermas III 356
Natural Law/Habermas: in its various versions from Locke and Hobbes to Rousseau and Kant to Hegel, we can understand it as a theoretical framework for attempts to establish legally organized state and social constitutions. (1)
Weber: this right of reason links the legitimacy of positive law to formal conditions and ultimately to rational agreement. The basis is the right of freedom, above all the freedom of contract. The voluntary rational contract is either the historical cause of all societies or a regulatory measure of evaluation. (2)
