Jurisprudential thinking involves a certain "value element", since "law is a creation of human beings. And just like other human masterpieces, law can only be understood from the perspective of its internal ideas". As Roscoe Pound once said, "in all classic times of legal history, either in ancient or modern world, argumentation, criticism and logical application of value norms were all among the major activities of jurists".
