Desperately Seeking Certainty by Daniel A. Farber
Book DescriptionIrreverent, provocative, and engaging, 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 normally try to build all of constitutional law from a single foundational idea, Daniel 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. Their book brilliantly reveals how problematic foundationalism is and shows how the pragmatic, multifaceted common law methods already used by the Court provide a far better means of reaching sound decisions and controlling judicial discretion than do any of the grand theories.

Beyond All Reason, Hardback (September 1997)» View all books by Daniel A. Farber
This book is the first systematic appraisal of the impact of multiculturalism on legal scholarship. Far from making society more humane and less oppressive, radical multiculturalism is destructive of dialogue and community. Worse, the authors contend, radical multiculturalism has deep structural links to anti-Semitism and other forms of racism.
