Both concepts, in juxtaposition, function in his account of justified legal reasoning. The latter refers to matters of law: coherence of legal norms is to be considered (... ) a function of its justifiability under higher-order principles or values, principles and values being extensionally equivalent; provided that the higher or highest-order principles and values seem acceptable as delineating a satisfactory form of life, when taken together. 2) The former refers to a test of truth or probability in questions of fact and evidence upon which direct proof by immediate observation is not available (MacCormick 1984: 245; 248f).

I believe that this criticism is a misfire, though it may be useful in preventing too naIve an interpretation of the interception hypothesis. It is right that 'deconstruction' is all too often looked upon as a philosophical permit to rip any text apart into ever so many aporias, ignite the gaze of complete confusion and knock off to the next job. The problem lies with the word 'any'. I have no difficulty with feeling bewilderment in the confrontation with, for instance, a work of art that, under certain forms of analysis, shows insoluble aporias of experience.
