“Is Relativism the Best Constitutional Defense of Free Speech?” Richard Reinsch Interviews Hadley Arkes for LibertyLawTalk
Richard Reinsch, the editor of the Online Library of Law and Liberty and the host of LibertyLawTalk, interviewed Hadley Arkes to discuss his thoughts on the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence on issues of speech, as articulated in cases such as Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire (1942), Matal v. Tam (2016), and NIFLA v. Becerra (2018). Their discussion centered on the Court’s tendency to base its rulings in a relativistic understanding of speech, exploring the premises that underlie this jurisprudence, and whether that understanding of speech contains an internal coherence.
