Comparative lawyers have to deal with many questions: What is law at home and abroad, what are legal rules here and there? How can we compare the largely unknown? The author Prof. Dr. Bernhard Grossfeld answers as follows: Law is part of a people´s identity as an imagined community and stands for a common dream, e.g. an American dream or a German dream. Geography and communications with signs form these dreams. In various chapters Grossfeld decodes the connections of religion, literature, poetry, music and mathematics with law.
