Law as consciousness?

Alfred Brophy

As Fisk and Gordon say at 530 -31 ...

In contrast to the various conceptions of law as communication or, as we will see in later papers, a domain of existence or activity, there are histories in which law figures as a form of consciousness, or as a lens through which people
perceive the world. ... As consciousness, law can be imagined in many different ways. The articles in this symposium emphasize law as the consciousness of resistance or rebellion: law as the opposition or antithesis, law as that which people resist, or law as the source of its own resistance.

David Bernstein

Sorry Al, that just makes it worse.
