  • Description:

    The principal aim of this humble work is to be informative rather than to be critical. The book does not purport to be a complete list, or an exhaustive or definitive account, of the modes or theories of constitutional interpretation. Rather, it seeks to survey and discuss the various modes, theories or approaches in interpreting the Constitution - as observed in the United States and in our jurisdiction. The discussion should not be taken as a criticism of any of them, or as an expression of preference for - or, better yet, a defense of - any of them. In addition, apart from presenting the fundamental premises as well as selected constitutional decisions/rulings of the Philippine Supreme Court, this work provides an initial look at the concept of judicial power and the institution of judicial review.
