Religion Without God

Ronald Dworkin (1931 – 2013) was an American philosopher and scholar of constitutional law. His theory of law as integrity, in which judges interpret the law in terms of consistent and communal moral principles, especially justice and fairness, is among the most influential contemporary theories about the nature of law.

Dworkin advocated a ‘moral reading’ of the United States Constitution, and an interpretivist approach to law and morality.
