Summary
Trevor N. Wedman shows that sovereignty, subjectivity and normativity, or the sovereign, the subject and the (legal) norm are three wholly interdependent concepts: the meaning of each of these concepts entails the other two. The title Inverting the Norm refers to an attempt at switching our perspective on legal normativity from top-down to bottom-up. The law is our reflected, and thus sovereign, form of common practice.
