Jay M. Feinman


The other papers in this symposium stress the importance of expanding our inquiry into cases such as O'Brien v. Cunard Steamship Co.' In this essay I discuss how the process of legal reasoning, as it ordinarily is conducted in first-year classes, introduces its own element of ideological distortion. My proposition is that, because of that ideological distortion, the moves suggested by the other symposiasts are important but limited.
