Morality, political economy and American constitutionalism

Edward Elgar,
Pub. Date:
The republican self-government project initiated by the founders of the US was animated by a concept of the two-person self, says Roth (economics and finance, U. of Texas-El Paso). It states that though people possess a moral sense or consciousness, respect for moral law must be cultivated. The US Constitution, therefore, is not concerned with attaining good ends or preference satisfaction, but with ensuring perfect equality among morally equivalent people. He argues that none of this finds expression in modern liberalism, which imagines the citizen-agent as a transcendental autonomous self unaffected by society or the environment.
