From Latin iūsiūr-lawyewes- in Indo-European roots
From the notion of sin - treated in its jural aspect - Aquinas passes naturally to the discussion of Law.
The position of a disestablished or an unestablished Church is comparatively modern, and has given rise to new jural con j - ceptions.
Thus the jural form in which morality was conceived only emphasized the fundamental difference between it and the laws of the state.
The ideas above expressed were not peculiar to Grotius; in particular the doctrine of the " fundamental pact " as the jural basis of government had long been maintained, especially in England, where the constitution historically established readily suggested such a compact.
In this way the utilitarian method is freed from the subversive tendencies which Butler and others had discerned in it; as used by Paley, it merely explains the current moral and jural distinctions, exhibits the obvious basis of expediency which supports most of the received rules of law and morality and furnishes a simple solution, in harmony with common sense, of some perplexing casuistical questions.
