The Release of Michael Greve’s “The Upside-Down Constitution”

Yesterday, The Upside-Down Constitution was officially introduced to the masses. AEI’s roll-out event, co-sponsored by the Federalist Society, featured (in addition to yours truly) Chris DeMuth, Rick Hills, and Ben Wittes in a lively panel discussion moderated by Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  Highlights include Chris’s discussion of “Originalism 2.0”, and Ben Wittes’ analogy to an angry feminist (both available on the AEI event page (link no longer available)).


You can watch the entire discussion here, or, if you’d rather, read my opening remarks.

    I think legal positivist asks feefdrint question than natural law theorist. Legal positivist: What is law? Natural law theorist: What law (is so good that) imposes moral obligation? First question is conceptual, second question is normative. Third question: What is relation (if any) between first and second question?
