The James Wilson Foundation on Natural Rights and the American Founding

Recommended Podcast: “The 1787 Project” with JWI Affiliated Scholar Justin Dyer

We heartily recommend a new podcast series produced and narrated by JWI Affiliated Scholar, Prof. Justin Dyer: The 1787 Project. The podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts,, and Listen Notes.

We point you toward a September 14th, 2020 episode about judicial supremacy, which is the idea that the judiciary’s interpretation of the Constitution and law is supreme to any other interpretation. In twenty minutes, Dyer discusses how judicial supremacy rose from judicial review, the objections to judicial supremacy, and both the historical and present roles of judicial supremacy in American government.

Law and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.
