This study, previously unknown to the world of comparative law, may be considered to be the first monograph in the world devoted to the methodology of comparative jurisprudence. Submitted in 1947 and defended as a dissertation in 1948 at the Ukrainian Free University in the Ukrainian language, the author considered comparative law to be a method. In turn, he defined "method," following other scholars, as the targeted use of a complex of means of effectuating scientific research on the basis of previously determined rules which also provide the formulation of the concepts and forming of a systemic notion about the subject-matter of the research. Especially rich in its treatment of interwar German materials, this volume is a historical landmark in the history of comparative law.
