Brunners Wissenschaft (Abstract English)

This study reconstructs the historical methodology, the historical impact and the academic reception of Heinrich Brunner (1840-1915), who taught in Berlin from 1872 onward and still stands as the most important scholar in the ranks of the German Historical School of the late 19th century. By reconstructing his intellectual world in detail, this work is the first ever to provide deep insight into the inner structures of legal historiography before and around 1900. In fact, German legal historiography was never again able to set the pace of international legal historical thought as strongly as it did at this time: At the height of the flourishing of the discipline as a whole, these years proved to be a key period for the professionalization, i.e. scientification, of modern legal historical thought. The award-winning dissertation also details the teachings and contours of this particular era of scholarship.
