In ""Neglected Policies"" Ira L. Strauber challenges scholars and critics of constitutional jurisprudence to think differently about the American Constitution and its interpretation. He argues that important aspects of law, policies, and politics are neglected because legal formalisms, philosophical theories, the reasoning of litigators and judges, and even the role of the courts are too often taken for granted. Strauber advocates an alternative approach to thinking about the legal and moral abstractions ordinarily used in constitutional decision-making. His approach, which he calls agnostic skepticism, interrogates all received jurisprudential notions, abandoning the search for ""right answers"" to legal questions. It demands that attention be paid to the context-specific, circumstantial social facts relevant to given controversies, and requires a habit of mind at home with relativism.
