Every discipline is composed of a set of restrictions on the imagination. The very notion of a legal discipline, with its codes and perimeters, avoids, forbids, and represses the use of other conceptual apparatuses, vocabularies, and styles. It is inherent to the idea of discipline – to train oneself and others to obey, contribute to, follow, to fit in to an ever-unfolding and therefore ever-reinforcing orthodoxy. Shared imaginaries are often a key element that distinguishes one discipline from another.
