Abstract

Professor Jeff Powell once observed that we are defined as much by the questions we "think important as the answers [we] think correct." Justice Benjamin Nathan Cardozo considered two questions to be particularly important for those invested in our legal system: first, how do judges decide cases, and second to what purpose does our judicial process work.

Keywords: Justice Cardozo, Tycho Brahe, decide cases, decisions, impact, purpose, judicial process
