Abstract

The article examines the philosophical gulf among the members of the Court and the differing brands of liberal and conservative philosophies to which each of the justices subscribe. It is based on the conclusion that a single liberal-conservative axis is not an adequate description of the divisions on the Court. It is a study for what became Stephen E. Gottlieb, MORALITY IMPOSED: THE REHNQUIST COURT AND LIBERTY IN AMERICA (New York: New York University Press, 2000).

Keywords: First Amendment, Balancing, Compelling Government Interests, Constitutional Law, Discrimination, Due Process
