In "Authority: Revisiting the Service Conception," Joseph Raz reflects on his work on the nature of authority, defending much of what he has written on the subject, while offering some additional clarifications and modifications. I must leave to others a more direct assessment of Raz's views on authority, and the revisions he has suggested in this most recent paper. I will instead focus on some of the methodological considerations he discusses in this paper; in particular, I will compare and contrast Raz's discussion here about conceptual analysis and the concept of authority with his recent analyses of the conceptual analysis of law.
