In this response to Pierre Legrand's dense and provocative account of my differences with James Gordley, I express some gratitude for Professor Legrand's kindness, some dismay at his account of Gordley, some uneasiness about the use of literary theory in comparative law, and not least my admiration for Legrand's deft and inventive writing. While I gladly acknowledge that there is a kinship between his attitude toward scholarship and my own, I insist that I have by no means given up on the hunt for truth.
