Show Summary Details


This chapter reflects on the legacy of Günter Frankenberg's seminal critique of comparative law theory, “Critical Comparisons,” published in 1985, on the occasion of its twentieth anniversary. After a brief reconstruction of the article's main contentions, it is situated within a larger dialogue among comparativists and legal theorists, who are striving for a transnational legal science.
