Fleming on the Life and Work of Ronald Dworkin
posted by Danielle Citron
Over at Balkanization, Professor James Fleming has a touching eulogy honoring Ronald Dworkin, see here. Professor Fleming is The Honorable Frank R. Kenison Distinguished Scholar in Law, Associate Dean for Intellectual Life, and Professor of Law at Boston University School of Law. It’s a fitting tribute, all the more so given that Fleming has enriched Dworkin’s life-long project of taking rights seriously and, like Dworkin, has been a extraordinary guide in helping us understand the moral complexities of pressing constitutional issues. New week, we shall be talking about Fleming and Linda McClain’s new book, Ordered Liberty: Rights, Responsibilities, and Virtues, which develops a civic liberalism that takes responsibilities and civic virtues – as well as rights – seriously.
