By United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, this book presents the argument that Supreme Court justices should, when dealing with issues pertaining to the constitution, keep "active liberty" in mind, which Justice Breyer defines as the rights of citizens of to participate in government. This position is commonly viewed as a response to originalism, a view espoused by Justice Scalia.
