And, of course, one might believe that originalism is both a sound interpretative
methodology and an appropriate decision making tool—albeit for very different
reasons. ... The severity of these problems depends both on what variant of
originalism is involved and whether one is worried about interpretation (
ascertainment of meaning) or adjudication (resolution of disputes). It is fair to say

But the founders' use and appli- cation of history is not the only dimension oflate
eighteenth-century constitutional interpretation at odds with originalism. There
are other legal doctrines that many originalists reject on textual grounds. These
late eighteenth-century doctrines include a common law approach to
constitutional interpretation, the law of reason or giving considerable weight to
unwritten constitutional prin- ciples, the law of nations, and the public good
doctrine in relationship ...

To what extent is modern substantive due process doctrine consistent with the
originalist approach to constitutional interpretation? ... Bill of Rights or from any
other federal source—were meant to be protected from, and only from, legislation
that discriminates on certain prohibited bases; (2) they were meant to be
protected, not only from such legislation, but also from some nondiscriminatory
legislation, namely, legislation that fails to regulate for the public good in a
reasonable fashion.

In either case, the originalist is called to be humble in the face of facts. The
concept of the Constitution of 1787 as a good first draft in need of constant
revision and updating—encapsulated in vague phrases such as the “living

developed by the contemporary values of sitting judges. Discerning the Founders
' original understanding is not a simple task. There are the problems of the
availability of evidence; the ...

1 The question is not whether the judiciary must interpret the constitution but how
it should do it.2 “New” originalist theory addresses the challenge posed by
vaguely worded rights by emphasizing a distinction between “interpretation” and
“construction.” Interpretation is concerned ... court turns to the task of construction,

worded rights in order to resolve particular disputes.3 So far, so good. But
interpretation may ...
