34 They are neither names of individual acts, nor of states of affairs. Such generic actions have, according to von Wright, performance-values analogous to truth-values. Two important consequences follow from this background: (1) deontic operators cannot be iterated, and (2) mixed formulas are not well-formed. On the one hand, a formula such as OOp is not well formed, because Op is not the name of a generic action and so cannot be under the scope of a deontic operator. On the other hand, a formula such as (p→Oq) would be ill-formed, because as variables are used under this interpretation to represent names of generic actions, p cannot be the antecedent of a conditional statement.
Deontic operators can be interdefined; using O to represent obligation, PH to represent prohibition, and P to represent permission: O primitive: P primitive: PHp = Oßp Op = ßPßp Pp = ßOßp PHp = ßPp This means that we may, for instance, formulate a norm that imposes an obligation in terms of prohibition or permission, and vice versa. ” In his seminal article “Deontic Logic,” G. H. von Wright begins by pointing out the definitional analogies between normative concepts and alethic modal concepts,32 and adds to them the existence of analogous laws of distribution between modal and deontic operators.
