Abstract:

The author argues for judicial decision making to be based on interpretation rather than simply applying past legal decisions. This judicial interpretation should be based on theory insisting "fundamental point of law is not to report consensus or provide efficient means to social goals, but to answer the requirement that a political community act in a coherent and principled manner toward all its members."--From publisher's description.
