Host Harry Kreisler welcomes Ronald M. George, former Chief Justice of California. Reflecting on his years of public service, Chief Justice George traces his intellectual journey and offers his thoughts on the qualities of thinking that characterize judicial deliberation. He argues for both decisional and institutional independence if the judiciary is to perform its role in a democracy as a co-equal branch of government. He analyzes the complexity of the California constitution and its amending process and discusses the intricate process of deliberation in all three branches of government when faced with controversial issues.
