Law and Revolution in South Africa

uBuntu, Dignity, and the Struggle for Constitutional Transformation

Drucilla Cornell

A Fordham University Press Publication

Just Ideas (FUP)

  • Drucilla Cornell is one of the U.S.'s most noted feminist thinkers and one of our most outspoken and inspiring philosophical and ethico-legal writers on questions of social justice.
  • This book is based in the riveting lectures Cornell has been giving in many places about the legal and ethical importance of the debates now going on in South Africa concerning Constitutional transformation.
  • Central to these debates is the quite revolutionary aspiration to work indigeneous African ethical ideals (ubuntu) into the legal code, as well as human dignity as a legal standard for human flourishing.
