One of Cardozo's most important books, The Paradoxes of Legal Science is a classic statement of juristic pragmatism. As Goodhart points out, it also reveals the non-legal sources that informed his work. "His many references in these lectures to Greek philosophy show how great a part his early classical training played in the formation of his ideas; in relating his general principles to the concrete cases which, in his words, he used as a kind of legal litmus paper, he was a true Aristotelian.": Goodhart, Five Jewish Lawyers of the Common Law 59-60.
