Summary
Current changes in the structure of the Supreme Court, as well as recent Supreme Court decisions affecting individual rights, have today brought constitutional issues to the forefront of American thought. This study, based on an original synthesis of political theory, history, law, and a larger approach to the interpretation of culture, develops a general theory of constitutional interpretation, touching on a myriad of current topics of constitutional controversy, including church-state relations, the scope of free speech, and the application of the constitutional right to privacy, abortion, and consensual adult sexual relations
