The publication by Ernest G. Lorenzen of a selection of his essays on the Conflict of Laws I makes appropriate a fresh consideration of the philosophic bases of a field of American law whose growth from a barren formalism to a fruitful discipline is in large measure attributable to Professor Lorenzen's penetrating analysis and reflection. For a third of a century, as these essays eloquently testify, little has happened in this area of legal activity which has failed to attract Professor Lorenzen's interest and attention. His own contributions vary from intensive studies in highly technical segments of the Conflict of Laws to those broader considerations of policy and method which give great impetus and direction to scholarly activity.
