Constitutional Goods

Alan Brudner

  • Presents an original theory of constitutional liberalism, as reconciling the commitment to individual liberty and the cultivation of a personality whose ends are the goods essential to human dignity
  • Provides legal positions on such controversial issues as reverse discrimination, hate speech and pornography, physician-assisted suicide, same-sex marriage, early stage abortion, and the duty to accommodate cultural practices discordant with liberalism
  • Includes rich comparative analysis that draws widely from the constitutional law of several liberal democracies, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Germany, South Africa, and India.
