Abstract

Originalism is one of the solutions that american constitutional theory offers to solve the «counter-majoritarian difficulty», but it could apply to all the constitutional experiences. All the originalists insists that the meaning of the Constitution is fixed: the words and phrases of the constitutional text have the same meanings today as they did when the Constitution was enacted. But we can distinguish between an old and a new originalism. The first one argues that the interpreters must read the constitutional text trying to search the original intent of the Framers’. The second one repudiates any form of intentionalism and proposes a diffe-rent methodology, based on the original public meaning of the text, that is the meaning that the words and phrases had (or would have had) to or-dinary members of the public during the time of the enactment.
The essay analyses the two forms of originalism, trying to discover which one is preferable and expounding a comparation with the rival method called the moral reading of the Constitution, which was proposed by Ronald Dworkin.
