     It is my pleasure and honor to introduce this published tribute to
my esteemed and wonderful colleague, Arthur Jacobson. Arthur has
been a member of the Cardozo faculty since 1977, and has had a great
deal to do with establishing the Cardozo Law School faculty's reputation
for producing serious and deeply intellectual scholarship. He has
attracted great thinkers to our school and to our faculty, many of whom
have contributed to this volume.
     Arthur's outlook is broad and inclusive. A defining characteristic of
Arthur's work is that he illuminates connections that are often invisible
to others. He asks us to take seriously as law systems and actors we do
not usually think of as law at all. Consider, for example, his Yale Law
Journal article, The Other Path of the Law,, which looks at how actors
in the informal economy have an impact on legal jurisprudence. His
Ph.D. thesis explored the political philosophy of Hegel, and in more
than 20 articles for the Cardozo Law Review he has been in dialogue
with philosophers from Plato to Spinoza.
     Arthur's work bridges what sometimes seemed to be opposing
camps, whether they are intellectual, political, or philosophical.
Together with Cardozo Professor Michel Rosenfeld, he wrote a book
called The Longest Night: Polemics and Perspectives on Election 2000,
which explored the 2000 election and Bush v. Gore. The book grew out
of the divergent politics of its co-editors, but instead of being a source of
tension their opposing views gave the book its value and integrity. His
interest in opposing opinions and systems also gave birth to an interest
in comparative scholarship. In recent years, he brought that interest to
Jewish law. With Cardozo faculty member Rabbi J. David Bleich he
