The Constitution was written to shape human behavior and affairs, and it does so by appealing to people's hearts, not only their minds. An interdisciplinary analysis sheds new light on the emotions that underlie constitutional law, with many cogent examples.

Andras Sajo is Justice at the European Court of Human Rights and University Professor, Central European University, Budapest. He lives in Strasbourg, France.

"Both the cultural-historical and the strictly legal erudition of the author are impressive and the depth and orginality of his intuitions are very often admirable. . . . "Constitutional Sentiments "is a well written scholarly argument, which reads pleasurably, flowing often like a good novel."--Bogdan Iancu, "Law & Politics Book Review"--Bogdan Iancu "Law & Politics Book Review "
