Six Things That Went Wrong with Delegate Descriptions of Their Behavior at the Federal Convention
2 Our Constitutional Logic 264 (2015)
  • Peter J. Aschenbrenner, Purdue University
Abstract
Our Constitutional Logic asks, ‘Can delegate participation at the federal convention be taken as one element in a framework (such as a citation hierarchy) which framework, by design, accounts for convention behavior both individual and collective?’ I answer this question by turning it back on the delegates themselves.’ ‘Could they have anticipated that the voices of one or two delegates would be preferred over all others?’ Six patterns of behavior should be taken into account. OCL surveys the possibilities.
Keywords
  • degrading delegate descriptions of their own behavior,
  • failing to enhance delegate descriptions of their own behavior.
