“From the earliest times the law has enforced rights and exacted liabilities by utilizing a corporate concept – by recognizing, that is, juristic persons other than human beings. The theories by which this mode of legal operation has developed, has been justified, qualified, and defined are the subject matter of a very sizable library. The historic roots of a particular society, economic pressures, philosophic notions, all have had their share in the law’s response to the ways of men in carrying on their affairs through what is now the familiar device of the corporation. ------ Attribution of legal rights and duties to a juristic person other than man is necessarily a metaphorical process. And none the worse for it. No doubt, ‘Metaphors in law are to be narrowly watched.’” Cardozo, J., in Berkey v. Third Avenue R. Co., 244 N.Y. 84, 94. “But all instruments of thought should be narrowly watched lest they be abused and fail in their service to reason.” See U.S. v. SCOPHONY CORP. OF AMERICA, 333 U.S. 795; 68 S.Ct. 855; 1948 U.S.”
