Brian Leiter on The Roles of Judges in Democracies

Brian Leiter在SSRN上面發表了一篇文章:The Roles of Judges in Democracies,討論民主體制下法官的角色。這一篇我覺得不是很好懂,一來他的出發點是從Leslie Green的 Law and the Role of A Judge開始,Green在那篇文章的論點不是具有合理爭論的!此外,Leiter認為討論此類議題,必須從一個唯實(或是現實論)的角度出發,體認到民主制度真正是在做啥,以及法官在近裁判時必定會運用政治與道德判斷!Leiter的立場應該不意外,但是總是激怒許多人,這一篇強烈推薦給大家!!
