Summary

Desperately Seeking Certainty attacks the current legal vogue for grand unified theories of constitutional interpretation. On both the Right and the Left, prominent legal scholars have been trying to build all of constitutional law from a single foundational idea. Although each of these ideas includes something of value, Dan Farber and Suzanna Sherry find that in the end no single, all-encompassing theory can successfully guide judges or provide definitive (or even sensible) answers to every constitutional question.
