The idea that law cannot be understood, or even defined, without taking into account its role as a means to an end is the common tenet of many conceptions of law: namely those that, at some level, assign central importance to the instrumental role of law in respect to variously identified and qualified ends. This article attempts to classify these teleological conceptions, although without any claims to completeness. The proposed reconstruction is preliminary to an analysis of the reasons that lead us to consider the teleological dimension as important or even necessary for answering to the question: what is law, in general?
Keywords: Teleological conceptions - Law’s ends - Functions of law - Social control - Technical language
