This essay examines the impact of the scholarship of Professor Richard A. Epstein in the debate over the constitutional protection of property rights. It suggests that Epstein has had little direct impact on judicial decisions pertaining to property rights, but that he has had significant influence in changing the terms of debate over the place of property in the constitutional order. The essay points out that Professor Epstein's influence extends far beyond the academy and has helped to trigger a national dialogue over the rights of owners.
