Rather, in each inertial frame, we have broad freedom in assigning simultaneity to pairs of events in the same frame of reference, one person may assign relations of simultaneity one way another person may do it differently within some limits, neither is factually wrong, according to the conventionality thesis, for there is no. At first sight, the tough questions posed by the conventionality thesis are not immediately obvious any one-way velocity is determined by convention but this does not seem to be a big deal velocity is a frame-dependent concept which means that absolute velocity does not represent anything objective for this reason it is.

The debate about the conventionality of simultaneity is usually carried on within the framework of the special theory of relativity even prior to the advent of that theory, however, questions had been raised (see, eg, poincaré 1898) as to whether simultaneity was absolute ie. The three (3) positivists' theoretical commitments are: social fact thesis conventionality thesis and, separability thesis first, the social factor or pedigree thesis focuses on legal validity as a function of social facts second, the conventionality thesis asserts that social facts give rise to legal validity due to some kind of social.
7 normativity (§113), and conventions and social norms (§12) a conventionalist has two ways to proceed: she can start with the con- viction that the conventionality thesis c and the – still to be stated – normativity thesis are analytic truths and stipulate the central notions in a way that the theses come out as analytic truths. Developments of schools are highly derived from three main theses ie social fact thesis conventionality thesis and the separability thesis1 first of which, the conventionality thesis defines law as conventional according to the conventionality thesis, it is a conceptual truth about law that legal validity can ultimately. Principles (dworkin) a) rules operate in a kind of 'all or nothing” fashion if a rule applies, it determines an outcome b) principles only provide a reason to decide the case one way or the other they do not necessarily determine an outcome c) principles have a dimension of weight ○ a distinction in degree – less general.
