What did the Constitution mean at the time it was adopted? How should we interpret today the words used by the Founding Fathers? In Originalism: A Quarter-Century of Debate, these questions are explained and dissected by the very people who continue to shape the legal structure of our country.
Originalism: A Quarter-Century of Debate is a lively and fascinating discussion of an issue that has occupied the greatest legal minds in America, and one that continues to elicit strong reactions from both those who support and those who oppose the rule of law. Steven G. Calabresi, co-founder of the Federalist Society and professor of law at Northwestern University School of Law, has compiled an impressive collection of speeches, panel discussions, and debates from some of the greatest and most prominent legal experts of the last twenty-five years.
“This book commemorates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Federalist Society in 1982. For the last quarter century, the Society and many of its members have promoted originalism as the correct philosophy to use in interpreting the Constitution. The originalim debate is of central importance to the Federalist Society’s mission of promoting the rule of law, constitutionally limited government, and the separation of powers. We believe that ours should be a government of laws and not one of men or of judges.”
