Larry Alexander on Misconceived Search for the Meaning of “Speech” in Freedom of Speech

Larry Alexander在SSRN上面發表了一篇文章:Misconceived Search for the Meaning of “Speech” in Freedom of Speech,探討了對於美國言論自由「言論」的界定之批判想法。簡單來說,他認為所有的言論都是symbolic,換言之,欠缺了「非象徵性言論」的範疇(…there is no category of non-symbolic speech)。從這個角度來說,探討某個行動是否為言論是誤導的,言論自由課題的基礎探討出發點是:政府是否嘗試限制了閱聽人接受某些想法(ideas)。這一篇文章很短,主張是非主流的,然而許多課題卻是可以進一步思考的!推薦閱讀!對於言論自由的討論美國法學界一直是興盛不衰的課題,而Frederick Schauer最近也有一篇很值得看(On the Distinction Between Speech and Action),也是推薦閱讀!
