Adolf Reinach’s “The Apriori Foundations of the Civil Law”

November 16, 2009 by

reinach picAn English translation of Adolf Reinach’s “Adolf Reinach: The Apriori Foundations of the Civil Law” (1913) was included in a special edition of the journal Aletheia in 1983. I’ve scanned in my copy since it is breaking apart (it is unfortunately adorned with my underlining and notes). The scan is here (PDF, 26MB), and includes:

  • John F. Crosby: A Brief Biography of Reinach
  • Reinach as a Philosophical Personality: Edmund Husserl, Dietrich von Hildebrand, Edith Stein, Hedwig Conrad-Martius
  • Adolf Reinach: The Apriori Foundations of the Civil Law
  • John F. Crosby: Reinach’s Discovery of the Social Acts
  • Discussion
  • Josef Seifert: Is Reinach’s “Apriorische Rechtslehre” More Important for Positive Law than Reinach Himself Thinks?

Reinach’s paper “On The Concept of Causality in the Criminal Law” was published earlier this year in Libertarian Papers (Vol. 1 (2009), Art. No. 35). As noted there, Adolf Reinach (1883-1917) was a German phenomenologist and legal theorist. For further information on Reinach, see Karl Schumann & Barry Smith, “Adolf Reinach: An Intellectual Biography,” in K. Mulligan, ed., Speech Act and Sachverhalt: Reinach and the Foundations of Realist Phenomenology (Dordrecht/Boston/Lancaster: Nijhoff, 1987), pp. 1-27; and “Papers on Adolf Reinach.” In addition, Reinach’s thought was examined in a symposium on “Austrian Law and Economics: The Contributions of Reinach and Rothbard” held at the Ludwig von Mises Institute on March 29-30, 2001, papers resulting from which were published in Vol. 7, no. 4 (Winter 2004) of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics.

Many greatful thanks for this scan! I was looking for this treatise by prof. Reinach for a long time, and the specific issue of Aletheia in which it appeared unfortunately wasn’t available at my university’s library.

By the way, do you – or anyone elso who frequently visits this blog – maybe has some (English translated) texts from Gerhart Husserl (yes, the son of!) who has also written some publications on philosophy of law and its aprioristic foundations?
