Abstract

Everyone can see that the Supreme Court nomination process has become destructively politicized. What has brought us to this state is the loss by the American legal profession of a commitment to truth and the acceptance of the view that no binding moral judgments can be made. This turn in law reflects the thinking of the wider culture. Only the recovery of some form of realism will rescue the nomination process from our current morass.

Keywords: Nihilism, Constitution, Politics, Judicial nomination
