The Meaning of Equality in Law, Science, Math, and Morals: A Reply

I shall set forth my thesis in Part I, using the Declaration of Independence (“all men are created equal”) to illustrate that the emptiness of equality inheres in its very meaning, and that the confusions of equality result from neglecting its meaning. In Part II, I respond to Professors Chemerinsky’s and D’ Amato’s reasons for believing that equality has independent normative content of its own. In Part III, I respond to Professor Chemerinsky’s separate reasons for believing that equality is rhetorically useful.
