In this impressive work, Stu Woolman sets out to provide an original theoretical foundation for South African constitutional law and jurisprudence by drawing on arguments from contemporary philosophy as well as empirical findings from the sciences and social sciences. The interdisciplinary sweep of the book is remarkable: the ground traversed includes philosophy of mind and action, neuroscience, behavioural economics, consciousness studies, evolutionary epistemology, choice architecture, social capital theory, experimental governance, development theory and the capabilities approach.
