Reflections on Life, Death, and the Constitution

George Anastaplo

Abstract

The role of law in government has been increasingly scrutinized as courts struggle with controversial topics such as assisted suicide, euthanasia, abortion, capital punishment, and torture. This book explores such issues by using classical standards of morality as a starting point for understanding them. Drawing on works of literature and philosophy, and on U.S. Supreme Court decisions, the book examines the intimate relationship between human nature and constitutional law.

Keywords: law, government, assisted suicide, euthanasia, abortion, capital punishment, torture, human nature, constitutional law, U.S. Supreme Court
