Jeremy Waldron and the Philosopher's Stone
31 Pages Posted: 21 Feb 2008
The author considers Jeremy Waldron's argument in favour of referring to, and on occasion perhaps even deferring to, foreign law. Waldron rests his argument on an analogy to how science works. The author argues this analogy is flawed. Indeed the author argues that Waldron's position on this issue is inconsistent with his earlier writings on the undesirability of strong judicial review under an entrenched bill of rights.
