Reflections on Life, Death, and the Constitution

The role of law in government has been increasingly scrutinized as courts struggle with controversial topics such as assisted suicide, euthanasia, abortion, capital punishment, and torture. Reflections on Life, Death, and the Constitution explores such issues by using classical standards of morality as a starting point for understanding them. Drawing on works of literature and philosophy, and on U.S. Supreme Court decisions, George Anastaplo examines the intimate relationship between human nature and constitutional law.

About the Author

George Anastaplo is professor of law at Loyola School of Law and lecturer in liberal arts at the University of Chicago. He is the author of numerous books, including Reflections on Constitutional Law and Reflections on Freedom of Speech and the First Amendment.

Deutsch, professor of political science and international relations, Geneseo University"

"Anastaplo seamlessly weaves some of our most commonly held notions – life, death, religion, liberty, natural law, morality – into an intricate and cohesive story." —Law and Politics Book Review"—
