Abstract

In this essay I address the perennial question of “What is law?” My data is our canon, as measured by citation counts. I limit my compass to the fifty most-cited articles in the modern Anglo-American tradition. My essay reads as a mosaic, but suggests the continuities in legal inquiry.

Keywords: legal history, jurisprudence, legal academy
