  • Liberation through Jurisgenesis: On Constitutionalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For every constitution there is an epic, for each decalogue a scripture. Once understood in the context of the narratives that give it meaning, law become not merely a system of rules to be observed, but a world in which we live. In this normative world, law and narrative are inseparably related.The courts are the capitals of law's empire, and judges are its princes, but not its seers or prophets. It falls to philosophers, if they are willing, to work out law's ambitions for itself, the purer form of law within and beyond the law have.The January 6, 2021, storming and sacking of the US Capitol was no storming of the Bastille. There were no prisoners there, only elected officials preparing to certify an election—one ... Read More

  • Freedom, Solidarity, and Their Institutions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Yet as we look at the world we see supposedly free institutions in many countries not so much overthrown as abandoned willingly, apparently with enthusiasm.For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.There are many members of the "freedom" police.This is the result of two facts. First, "freedom" has many, many meanings. It has so many meanings in so many different contexts that the term readily can seem to be an exemplar of Wittgenstein's notion of "family resemblance"—a class of things some of which share with some other things in the same class only the class name. "Freedom" may mean: the absence of subjection to others; acting from ... Read More

  • Justice, Democracy, and Liberation: Ambedkar's Navayana Pragmatism and the
           Tortuous Path of Social Democracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Democracy seems at a crossroads. The challenges of leaders with despotic tendencies, voters who are increasingly polarized, and the challenges of misinformation all align to give our hopes in government for the people and by the people a renewed skepticism. Which people' What groups' These are the questions that are increasing asked when we turn to who will vote for leaders, who gives a government legitimacy, and who we want involved in our politics from our own community. In the United States, partisans have record levels of animosity for those on the other side, seeing them as ignorant or as badly motivated on the whole. But these are the people that must be included in our democratic government, and these are ... Read More

  • A Pragmatist Perspective on Brains, Trust, and Choice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Our evolutionary success is fundamentally linked to our great social capability, which reflects diverse cognitive/affective tools situated in cultural contexts.1 Our evolution is rooted in group formation; we are rooted with others as are other mammals and across diverse phyla. Being in a group is a critical feature of our evolutionary past, and many things facilitate group formation. Neocortical expansion is fundamentally linked to social capability, social contact, social deception, and social smarts.2Language of course stands out, but other cognitive/affective tools evolved with us: our sense of time, space, our predictive capabilities, music and all sorts of symbolic expressions to tame our unpredictable ...

  • The End of Enlightenment Liberalism'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It has been a bad few years for Enlightenment liberalism. Its cornerstones seem to be under furious and multiple attack. Cognitive science argues that there is no free will at all; hence, determinism is inevitable. Poststructuralism in the social sciences and humanities sees the individual as constructed by history and cultural signs, implying there is no individual self-manifestation to protect. The notion of an individual independent of community has been tied to patriarchy, white supremacy, and oppressive capitalism. A special target is a set of legal institutions and processes, like judicial independence and procedural equality before the law. Enlightenment notions of objective truth and universalist ...

  • Truth, Illusion, and Their (Dis)Contents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Much has been made, in the post-truth era, of the hold that lies, big and small, have over our political life.1 The loss of factuality, accompanied by the loss of a shared orientation to common sense, has seemingly plunged us into disparate publics, unglued from one another and unanchored by a common world. From the perspective of political epistemology, we can see, as Michael Lynch puts it, that "the value of truth in democracy" is "under threat" and caught in a "feedback loop of mistrust."2 Lynch identifies a fundamental epistemic vulnerability intrinsic to democracy and to the way that communities take shape around shared convictions.3While many post-truth theorists recognize that the epistemic and affective ...

  • Freedom in the Age of Social Stupidity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the section "Liberty of Thought and Expression" in the 1932 edition of his Ethics, John Dewey proclaims, "The problem of bringing about an effective socialization of intelligence is probably the greatest problem of democracy today."1 What is meant by "social intelligence"' Dewey offers the following anecdote:Henry George, speaking of ships that ply the ocean with a velocity of five or six hundred miles a day, remarked, "There is nothing whatever to show that the men who to-day build and navigate and use such ships are one whit superior in any physical or mental quality to their ancestors, whose best vessel was a coracle of wicker and hide. The enormous improvement which these ships show is not an improvement ... Read More
