"The pioneer of the basic modern trends in jurisprudence was a German, Rudolf von Jhering. He might appropriately be called the Mark Twain of German jurisprudence. Gifted with a rare sardonic humor, he led the revolt against philosophical abstraction and conceptualism in German jurispridence and the glorification of logic as a juristic method, which enabled the jurists to disguise the law as a system of legal mathematics." --William Seagle, "Rudolf von Jhering: Or Law as a Means to an End," University of Chicago Law Review, Vol. 13 No. 1 (December 1945) 71.
