A unique contribution to the debate over the original intentions of the Framers of the U.S. Constitutions.
Library JournalThe current political and social debate about constitutional jurisprudence is appropriately framed here by Jaffa, professor emeritus of political philosophy at Claremont Graduate Schools. He examines the judicial interpretations by various American political thinkers and jurists of founding Constitutional principles. Jaffa supports a higher law/natural law interpretation of the Constitution. He argues, ``Modern liberalism and modern conservatism thus viewed, stand upon common ground.'' Contributors Bruce Ledewitz, Robert Stone, and George Anastaplo criticize Jaffa's main essay, and he responds. All the articles focus attention on the question, ``What were the `original intentions' of the Framers of the Constitution?'' For academic legal collections.-- Steven Puro, St. Louis Univ.
