Thank you, Fortuna and your Delightful Wheel

Sometimes life hands you precisely the (in-need-of-correction) quote you desire in order to argue that your research isn’t stupid:

Morton J. Horowitz

“This chapter focuses on Holmes’s theoretical writings through ‘The Path of the Law,’ which represents his last effort at self-conscious, abstract discussion of legal theory. Though the influence of Holmes’s judicial career–especially his years on the U.S. Supreme Court–is undoubtedly of major significance for the history of legal thought, these were not years of jurisprudential innovation.”

In The Transformation of American Law, 1870-1960: The Crisis of Legal Orthodoxy (New York: Oxford University Press, 1992), 109.
