Жуанжан О.
Translator: М. В. Антонов, Е. Г. Самохина

In the paper are studied the particular aspects of the conception of the founder of the Historical School of Law F.K. von Savigny. The author examines Savigny’s work in connection with the intellectual life in Germany in the first half of XIX century. The author stresses that the potential of Savigny’s thought is not limited by his metaphysical ideas about Volksgeist and about the historical evolution of law. The conception of this German thinker also reveals important elements of hermeneutic analysis of law, of intuitive insights into the texts of law to discover the hidden historical meanings. These ideas of Savigny are described by the author as philological turn in the German science of law.
