This paper looks at deontic logic as resulting from both a betterness ordering on states (i.e., a ‘deontic preference’) and a priority ordering on properties (i.e., a ‘law’ explicitly representing a standard of behavior). The correspondence between these two orderings offers a rich perspective from which to look at deontic scenarios and puzzles, and in particular at contrary-to-duties. The framework naturally lends itself to describing dynamics involving both orderings, thereby providing a new analysis of norm change as ‘betterness change’.
