Freedom's Law: The Moral Reading of the American Constitution
Oxford University Press, 1999 - 427 pages
Written by the world's best-known political and legal theorist, Freedom's Law: The Moral Reading of the American Constitution is a collection of essays that discuss almost all of the great constitutional issues of the last two decades, including abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, homosexuality, pornography, and free speech. Professor Dworkin offers a consistently liberal view of the Constitution and argues that fidelity to it and to law demands that judges make moral judgments. He proposes that we all interpret the abstract language of the Constitution by reference to moral principles about political decency and justice. His `moral reading therefore brings political morality into the heart of constitutional law. The various chapters of this book were originally published separately and are now drawn together to provide the reader with a rich, full-length treatment of Dworkin's general theory of law.

Freedom's law: the moral reading of the American ConstitutionAvis d'utilisateur - Book Verdict
Dworkin (jurisprudence, Oxford; law, New York Univ.) is one of today's most thoughtful and influential legal philosophers. Over the last dozen years, he has explored the boundaries of the state's authority to regulate some of today's great moral issues. Most recently in Life's Dominion (LJ 5/1/93), he presented an express argument about abortion, euthanasia, and the proper scope of individual freedom in an ethically committed society. With Freedom's Law, Dworkin proposes a practice of constitutional interpretation, termed "moral reading," which applies abstract moral principles such as liberty, equality, and dignity to concrete political cases. The result is an expansive view of the American Constitution that many will not agree with; general readers may be more comfortable with Joseph Goldstein's appeal for a principled frankness in The Intelligible Constitution (Oxford, 1992). But those who take the time to read Freedom's Law carefully are certain to be impressed with Dworkin's sense of the vitality of our Constitution as a principled document. Highly recommended for all libraries.--Jerry E. Stephens, U.S. Court of Appeals Lib., Oklahoma City

Like many other Dworkin's writings, this is dense and difficult in the extreme. His writing style takes immense patience to parse, and I for one was frequently confused about what he was saying. It ... Consulter l'avis complet
