Ronald Dworkin characterises moral and political values to be interpretive concepts. Interpretive concepts, for him, are special kinds of concepts due to their conceptual nature and the property of them being normative. In this paper I closely examine his claims based on the conceptual nature of interpretive concepts to argue that given the literature on what concepts are, interpretive concepts cannot be a distinct kind of concept based on their conceptual nature.
