Julius Stone has pointed out that in view of the limited range of international judicial power and the corresponding necessity of restrained and careful reasoning, the contributions of international judges deficient in stringency of reasoning would lack the persuasive force so much required by the feebleness of the execution machinery of international judicial decisions. An efficient logical decisionprocedure, as the counter-formula method promises to be, would therefore be a much needed intellectual tool for international judges and other international lawyers.
