Law, Pragmatism and Constitutional Interpretation: From Information Exclusion to Information Production

Pragmatism Today 3 (1):39-57 (2012)
Through an analysis of the US Supreme Court's case Heller this paper argues that legal process can be pragmatically reconceptualized so as to create information necessary to decide complex social issues. This is in contrast to other more standard conceptions of law as more emphasizing what information ought to be excluded.
