Chapter Summary

Aleksandr Gorovtsov (Alexandre Gorovtzeff)formerly a professor at the University of Perm and then privat-dotsent at the University of Petrograd, while living in exile in Francepublished two volumes of a book Etudes sur la principologie du droit in 1928. Gorovtsovs studies covered the following basic questions of legal theory: the notion of the object in law and its significance for legal theory; the problem of distinguishing between private and public law in the light of his new notion of the object in law; and the classification of legal disciplines, based on this notion. Gorovtsovs conception of the object in law involves the introduction of new notions which transfer the matter to another dimension, where interests representing concrete sub-strata are linked with abstract sub-strata. This vision offers a new approach in looking at what are referred to as objects in traditional theories of law.
