Millennium to Millennium logos and locus have been the dominant factors determining the bench-mark of Civilization. But age, after age both logos and locus transformed to what they are today.

Hobbes said, in the State of nature, men were nasty, brutish and selfish. The Sama Veda reclaimed Tal-tuam Ashi (Thou art-The). The monkhood of the Buddha was open to the kings and the Commons, the priest and the prostitutes. But the human urge could not be bonded by either logos or locus. Nature being the ultimate source of both logos and locus.

The 17th Century Dutch Jurist-Hugo CROTIUS held that-humans by nature are not only reasonable but social. Thus the rule that is Natural to them dictated by reason are those that inspire them to live in harmony in the Society of men and women.

John Locke viewed that humans in a State of Nature are free and equal, but yet insecure in their freedom. Is Natural Law an elaboration of Realism? August Comte was in Search of Positivism in Natural Law. Naturalist Emile Zola favoured the raw slice of life like, Lio TOLSTOI and August STRINDBERG-heridity, environment, circumstances and the varied occupations-agriculture, mining, medicine, prostitution, army, Government trade et seg; follies and foibles, crimes and criminality must also be a part of human nature.

Justice is the fundamental human right and Positive law is limited to the statute Book. And Justice is of unlimited horizon. The end of the all Laws and rules is thus the sine qua non of Natural Justice. Would Civilization end-up with the standardised Jurisprudence? Or shall we Progress further with-”epistolary” of even Participative Jurisprudence-in Search of truth?
