Democracy, expertise, and academic freedom : a First Amendment jurisprudence for the modern state by Robert Post( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A leading American legal scholar offers a surprising account of the incompleteness of prevailing theories of freedom of speech. Robert C. Post shows that the familiar understanding of the First Amendment, which stresses the "marketplace of ideas" and which holds that "everyone is entitled to an opinion," is inadequate to create and preserve the expert knowledge that is necessary for a modern democracy to thrive. For a modern society reliably to answer such questions as whether nicotine causes cancer, the free and open exchange of ideas must be complemented by standards of scientific competence and practice that are both hierarchical and judgmental. Post develops a theory of First Amendment rights that seeks to explain both the need for the free formation of public opinion and the need for the distribution and creation of expertise. Along the way he offers a new and useful account of constitutional doctrines of academic freedom. These doctrines depend both upon free expression and the necessity of the kinds of professional judgment that universities exercise when they grant or deny tenure, or that professional journals exercise when they accept or reject submissions"--

Citizens divided : campaign finance reform and the constitution by Robert Post( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which struck down a federal prohibition on independent corporate campaign expenditures, is one of the most controversial opinions in recent memory. Defenders of the First Amendment greeted the ruling with enthusiasm, while advocates of electoral reform recoiled in disbelief. Robert Post offers a new constitutional theory that seeks to reconcile these sharply divided camps. Post interprets constitutional conflict over campaign finance reform as an argument between those who believe self-government requires democratic participation in the formation of public opinion and those who believe that self-government requires a functioning system of representation. The former emphasize the value of free speech, while the latter emphasize the integrity of the electoral process. Each position has deep roots in American constitutional history. Post argues that both positions aim to nurture self-government, which in contemporary life can flourish only if elections are structured to create public confidence that elected officials are attentive to public opinion. Post spells out the many implications of this simple but profound insight. Critiquing the First Amendment reasoning of the Court in Citizens United, he also shows that the Court did not clearly grasp the constitutional dimensions of corporate speech. Blending history, constitutional law, and political theory, Citizens Divided explains how a Supreme Court case of far-reaching consequence might have been decided differently, in a manner that would have preserved both First Amendment rights and electoral integrity"--Unedited summary from book jacket
Another cosmopolitanism by Seyla Benhabib( Book )

32 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these two important lectures, distinguished political philosopher Seyla Benhabib argues that since the UN Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, we have entered a phase of global civil society which is governed by cosmopolitan norms of universal justice -- norms which are difficult for some to accept as legitimate since they are in conflict with democratic ideals. In her first lecture, Benhabib argues that this tension can never be fully resolved, but it can be mitigated through the renegotiation of the dual commitments to human rights and sovereign self-determination. Her second lecture develops this idea in detail, with special reference to recent developments in Europe (for example, the banning of Muslim head scarves in France). The EU has seen the replacement of the traditional unitary model of citizenship with a new model that disaggregates the components of traditional citizenship, making it possible to be a citizen of multiple entities at the same time."--Publisher description
Censorship and silencing : practices of cultural regulation by Calif.) Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Censorship and Silencing explores the transformation of familiar understandings of censorship. Questions involving the regulation of speech used to conform to simple, predictable political alignments, with "conservatives" set against "liberals."" "But the landscape of censorship has radically altered. Feminists join with right-wing fundamentalists to seek the suppression of pornography, while liberals ally with right-wing libertarians to protect hate speech. Underlying these developments are fundamental intellectual developments, exemplified in the work of Michel Foucault." "In this volume a distinguished and interdisciplinary set of authors examine the issue of censorship from a variety of perspectives. They inquire into the use of law as an instrument for the regulation of speech, they explore the use of state power to establish and marginalize discursive practices, and they address the question of invoking state power to regulate speech so as to redress private imbalances of power."--Jacket

Justice and empathy : toward a constitutional ideal by Robert A Burt( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An impassioned argument for the role of courts as a moral and social agent for change and protecting the vulnerable ... The Supreme Court long considered its highest mission to be the protection of individual liberty from intrusion by government, but the court shifted its focus to social and economic equality. Constitutional scholar Robert A. Burt explores this shift and its implications, especially for the legal protection of the vulnerable. Crucial to Burt's perspective is his unconventional view of the role of judges--not simply to decide disputes, but to promote a respectful dialogue leading to a genuine understanding between parties."--Publisher's website

Constitucionalismo democrático : por una reconciliación entre Constitución y pueblo by Robert Post( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : " Según una arraigada tradición, cuanto más se apega un sistema jurídico a la letra de la ley, más se distancia de la realidad social. Robert Post y Reva Siegel se proponen romper con este presupuesto, sosteniendo que los jueces no pueden ser los intérpretes últimos de los mandatos constitucionales, sino que deben además escuchar las voces de la sociedad y de los otros poderes públicos. El constitucionalismo democrático se afirma como una concepción sobre la capacidad que deben tener los tribunales superiores para reflejar e incorporar en sus fallos las perspectivas constitucionales de diversos sectores y organismos democráticos, con el objetivo de configurar de manera conjunta el significado del derecho, a través de un diálogo constructivo. En definitiva, a esta corriente no sólo le interesa cuestionar que los tribunales se hayan atribuido ciertas facultades que originalmente no les fueron conferidas: le interesa también proponer una nueva forma de activismo judicial, que sea sobre todo consciente de que el significado de la constitución se establece a partir de interacciones fluidas y constantes con las otras ramas del poder público, las asociaciones civiles, los partidos políticos, los movimientos sociales, la opinión pública, los centros de investigación y el poder judicial en su conjunto. Según este enfoque, la ley no puede emanar de un intercambio exclusivo entre magistrados. La presente obra recoge por primera vez en castellano textos fundamentales de dos de los principales referentes en el debate constitucional contemporáneo y en el movimiento por un constitucionalismo democrático. Se trata, a la vez, de una propuesta relevante para las deliberaciones del constitucionalismo latinoamericano, atrapadas todavía en disyuntivas maniqueas sobre las tensiones entre constitución y democracia."
