This article identifies the key factors that are taken into consideration by federal judges empowered to apply and give doctrinal content to the rules governing judicial review. The original inspiration was more modest. The article, as conceived, was to be simply an attempt to clarify the concept of reviewability. After some thinking about the topic, the close relationship between the concept of reviewability and other concepts of judicial review became clearer to me, and I decided that a useful antidote to the customary analysis, which emphasizes distinctions among these various concepts, is to emphasize their similarities.
