Program – The Unbounded Level of the Mind: Rod Macdonald's Legal Imagination

While from the bounded level of our mind
Short views we take, nor see the lengths behind,
But, more advanced, behold with strange surprise
New distant scenes of endless science rise!
     Alexander Pope "An Essay on Criticism"
