A Constitution of Many Minds:
Why the Founding Document Doesn't Mean What It Meant Before
Cass R. Sunstein

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]


"What distinguishes the most important minds is less the answers they offer than the questions they ask. Who but Cass Sunstein would think to ask what unites the arguments and assumptions of traditionalists, populists, and cosmopolitans in constitutional interpretation and elsewhere--and what influences the force of those arguments at different times and in different places? Exploring those questions with his characteristic elegance and insight, Sunstein--the most prolific and significant legal scholar of our time--has written a brilliant book for all seasons."--Laurence H. Tribe, Harvard Law School

"Sunstein combines diverse theories of constitutional interpretation into one coherent framework. That framework is captured by the book's title--A Constitution of Many Minds. This book is likely to be widely read and highly cited."--Kim Lane Scheppele, author of Legal Secrets

"Sunstein presents an elegant and fascinating argument, and he consistently tries to play fair with the views he is assessing. He covers many areas and has provocative things to say about them. A Constitution of Many Minds is a fine book that is sure to provoke much discussion."--Sanford Levinson, author of Our Undemocratic Constitution
