The alternative diagnosis of the present state of administrative law would view its disjointed and fragmented condition as a passing, interim phase. Such a view may be justified because history suggests that the conceptual vacuum created by the disintegration of the traditional model will not remain long unfilled. We may be unable to see beyond the shards of the immediate present and are thus forced to talk of 'pragmatic compromise' in order to conceal our embarrassment; but the law cannot be reduced entirely to a process of interstitial adjustment or social engineering.
