In academia we often mention law and politics in the same breath, yet at the same time we are accustomed to consider law, the rule of law, and democracy as subjects of different disciplines: jurisprudence deals with law, political science with democracy, and each deals with the constitutional state in its own way – jurisprudence in normative terms political science from an empirical standpoint.

- Jürgen Habermas, “On the Internal Relation between the Rule of Law and Democracy”
