University of Dayton Law Review
This Comment uses the dialectical paradigm of German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1833) to analyze the progression of United States voting laws since the colonial foundations of a participatory democratic process in this country. This analysis can be used to interpret past progression of voting rights in the United States as well as a provoking way to predict future trends in United States voting rights - as an ongoing "progressive" political process or rhetorical method of erasing categories or classifications and eliminating distinctions amongst persons.
