Description Under the state of emergency, governments have curtailed numerous fundamental rights. Since epistemic uncertainty makes it difficult to determine whether this is constitutionally warranted, we are witnessing a dispute over the nature and future of constitutional democracy. I discuss why one of the core lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic is that rather that asking who is the best expert on any given problem, we need to figure out how to manage normative diversity.
