Professor Jaffa’s paper represents an important step in interpreting the United States Constitution. Professor Jaffa demonstrates that the advocates of historical interpretation are in fact descendants of John C. Calhoun rather than of the Framers; that they consider Edmund Burke, but not Abraham Lincoln, a “Defender of the Constitution;” and that they read God and natural rights endowed by man’s creator out of the Constitution.
