This introduction is focused on two main points. First, it provides an explanation of the continued relevance of the notion of the material constitution in constitutional studies and beyond. It does so by showing the added epistemic value of the notion compared to other conceptions: the political constitutions, the living constitution, the mixed constitution. Second, it gives an overview of the contents of the Handbook by explaining its organisation and its thematic unities.
