European civilization is the result of the efforts of many nations, each contributing
according to its talent and historical circumstances. Thus it was commonly
observed in the Middle Ages that Italy was the home of law, France of philosophy
and theology and Germany of science and technology. The Low Countries grew
into a distinctive area on the cultural map of Europe, as they emerged from feudal

this question is not only sterile but also dangerous for legal scholarship. The
Savigny-Thibaut opposition in nineteenth century Germany with the former
