Franck claims these erroneous propositions have allowed the Court's power to grow well beyond its constitutional mandate. He persuasively argues that a more accurate and responsible view of judicial power can be revived by reexamining the Framers' thought, the writings of liberal philosopher (especially Hobbes, Locke, and Blockstone), and the early opinions of the Supreme Court."@en ;
