Abstract:     
I will contend that Fuller’s secular or “procedural” natural law, as described by Moffat, does not cover the theoretical position that could be occupied by a substantive natural lawyer, that such a theoretical position is viable today, and that there are some key elements in Fuller’s theory that actually conflict with substantive natural law and might therefore be criticized from that perspective.
