From Hegel to Wilson to Breyer

Paul mentioned it last night, but I want to take the liberty of reiterating that the Daily Standard has posted the column that Paul and I co-authored on the provenance of “the living Constitution”: “From Hegel to Wilson to Breyer.” Please check it out.
As Paul noted, we are indebted to our friends at the Claremont Institute who put us to work on its outstanding program of panels at the annual convention of the American Political Science Convention in Washington over Labor Day weekend. My contribution to the column is derived from Professor R.J. Pestritto’s new book, Woodrow Wilson and the Roots of Modern Liberalism, to which the institute devoted a panel at the convention. Pestritto’s book is a brilliant, shocking and deeply illuminating work of intellectual history.
JOHN adds: The most original insights I’ve seen in a magazine article in a long time. There is a certain irony here–you have to pay for Dowd and Krugman, but you can get Mirengoff and Johnson for free!
