To paraphrase Albert Einstein, paradigms should be put as simply as possible, but no simpler. Thus, one must speak carefully about a "risk-based paradigm" (or, for that matter, about each reform paradigm under discussion) because there is usually more to a paradigm than meets the eye. The purpose of this chapter is to highlight the inescapability of "process" considerations in a review of any of the substantive paradigms put forth to reform environmental policymaking and prior­ ity setting, with particular attention to the risk-based paradigm.
