  • Law and Disagreement.Arthur Ripstein & Jeremy Waldron - 2001 - Philosophical Review 110 (4):611.
    The most obvious way of settling disagreements peacefully is to take a vote. Yet, as Jeremy Waldron points out, the attitudes of philosophers and political theorists towards majority voting have ranged from indifference to hostility. Piled on top of all this scorn for legislation comes further scorn from social choice theorists, who insist that majority rule is useless as a means of making decisions.

  • The Invention of Autonomy: A History of Modern Moral Philosophy.Ian Hunter - 2000 - Philosophical Review 109 (3):444.
    With this work J. B. Schneewind has provided the most comprehensive history of modern moral philosophy available in English. Beginning with the moral theology of the Reformation and ending with Kant, Schneewind’s book offers a panorama of moral philosophy that includes the early modern natural lawyers and their metaphysical critics, the British sentimentalists and their rationalist opponents, and a whole series of eighteenth-century attempts to develop a secular moral philosophy grounded in autonomous human reason and will. Despite its broader multinational (...)

  • Principles of Constitutional Design.Donald S. Lutz - 2006 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book is written for anyone, anywhere sitting down to write a constitution. The book is designed to be educative for even those not engaged directly in constitutional design but who would like to come to a better understanding of the nature and problems of constitutionalism and its fundamental building blocks - especially popular sovereignty and the separation of powers. Rather than a 'how-to-do-it' book that explains what to do in the sense of where one should end up, it instead (...)

  • Law and Disagreement.Jeremy Waldron - 1998 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Jeremy Waldron is one of the world's leading legal and political philosophers. This collection brings together thirteen of his most recent essays which, in the course of working the book up for publication, the author has revisited and thoroughly revised. He addresses central issues within the liberal tradition, focusing on the law and its role in a pluralistic state which experiences deep disagreements about values and rights, and about the role of the state itself.

  • Libertarianism Without Inequality.Michael Otsuka - 2003 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Michael Otsuka sets out to vindicate left-libertarianism, a political philosophy which combines stringent rights of control over one's own mind, body, and life with egalitarian rights of ownership of the world. Otsuka reclaims the ideas of John Locke from the libertarian Right, and shows how his Second Treatise of Government provides the theoretical foundations for a left-libertarianism which is both more libertarian and more egalitarian than the Kantian liberal theories of John Rawls and Thomas Nagel. Otsuka's libertarianism is founded on (...)

  • In Fairness to Future Generations: International Law, Common Patrimony, and Intergenerational Equity.Edith Brown Weiss & Francis Cabell Brown Professor of International Law Edith Brown Weiss - 1988 - Transnational Pub Incorporated.
    In this book Professor Weiss combines thorough research and careful analysis with imaginative solutions and a moral fervour, to show how rules of international law can be applied in an intertemporal dimension, and how the basic principles of the intergenerational equity can be developed to provide new standards for human behaviour. She manages to communicate to the reader not only that the situation is getting desperate but also that human intelligence can in time devise adequate remedies, without destroying completely our (...)

  • Ulysses Unbound: Studies in Rationality, Precommitment, and Constraints.Jon Elster - 2000 - Cambridge University Press.
    Common sense suggests that it is always preferable to have more options than fewer, and better to have more knowledge than less. This provocative book argues that, very often, common sense fails. Sometimes it is simply the case that less is more; people may benefit from being constrained in their options or from being ignorant. The three long essays that constitute this book revise and expand the ideas developed in Jon Elster's classic study Ulysses and the Sirens. It is not (...)

  • Constitutions as Chains? On the Intergenerational Challenges of Constitution-Making.Konstantin Chatziathanasiou - 2017 - Intergenerational Justice Review 10 (1).
    In this essay; I explore the ambiguity of the competition’s title “Constitutions as Chains”; and distinguish between two intergenerational challenges in constitution-making: the challenge of intergenerationally just constitutional provisions; and the challenge of creating a stable institution which is accepted by successive generations. I prioritise the latter. After contrasting classic ideas of Burke and Paine; I discuss different ways of addressing the challenge; such as the amendability of a constitution; eternity clauses or recurring constitutional assemblies. A flexible approach towards existing (...)

    This paper examines the legitimacy conditions of constitutionalism by examining one particular type of constitutional provision: provisions aimed at advancing future generations’ interests. After covering the main forms that such provisions can adopt; it first considers three legitimacy gains of constitutionalising them. It then explores two legitimacy concerns that so doing raises. Given that constitutions are difficult to amend; constitutionalisation may threaten future generations’ sovereignty. And it may also make the constitution’s content impossible to adapt to changing circumstances and interests. (...)

  • The Invention of Autonomy: A History of Modern Moral Philosophy.J. B. Schneewind - 1998 - Journal of Religious Ethics 29 (1):175-197.
    J. B. Schneewind's "The Invention of Autonomy" has been hailed as a major interpretation of modern moral thought. Schneewind's narrative, however, elides several serious interpretive issues, particularly in the transition from late medieval to early modern thought. This results in potentially distorted accounts of Thomas Aquinas, Hugo Grotius, and G. W. Leibniz. Since these thinkers play a crucial role in Schneewind's argument, uncertainty over their work calls into question at least some of Schneewind's larger agenda for the history of ethics.

  • Constitutional Handcuffs.Richard Albert - 2017 - Intergenerational Justice Review 10 (1).
    This article makes three contributions to the literature on constitutional change. First; it reinforces the theoretical foundations of constitutional entrenchment by defining the spectrum of constitutional permanence. Second; it offers an original taxonomy of entrenchment clauses; including preservative; transformational and reconciliatory entrenchment. Third; in concluding that absolute entrenchment undermines the participatory values that give constitutionalism its meaning; it proposes an alternative to entrenchment: the entrenchment simulator. Whereas entrenchment clauses prohibit constitutional amendment; the entrenchment simulator provides a promising alternative that both (...)

  • Constitutions as Intergenerational Contracts: Flexible or Fixed?Jörg Tremmel - 2017 - Intergenerational Justice Review 10 (1).
    Constitutions enshrine the fundamental values of a people and build a framework for a state’s public policy. With regard to intergenerational justice; their endurance gives rise to two concerns: the welfare concern and the sovereignty concern. In this paper; I outline a procedure for constitution- amending that is intergenerationally just. In its line of reasoning; the paper debates ideas such as perpetual constitutions; sunset constitutions; constitutional reform commissions and constitutional conventions both historically and analytically. It arrives at the conclusion that (...)
