Abstract

The central claim of Abner Greene’s Against Obligation appears to be that the federal government should allow exemptions from some restrictive laws in order to accommodate religious and other such commitments of its subjects. Professor Greene says that the law should be seen as a source of normative authority on a par with independent sources of authority (such as ordinary subjects’ religious convictions), and the government should loosen its own commitment to the Constitution accordingly.
