    1. The parts that aren't about how to be a judicial activist are much more interesting. Cardozo clearly feels that they are less important but the insight/page is totally insane in those sections.The science metaphor generally wears thin. It almost seems as though Cardozo's uncertainty is driving him to focus on a problem he can't solve as a matter of logic. Still very thoughtful.
