The Social Bond

  • Peter van Schilfgaarde


So far, our story has gone back and forth between the continuing story of law—the legend of law—the ‘society’ and the individual. The threefold question has been how law puts its mark on society, how society develops within the structure of law and how the individual person finds his way to justice as the addressee of law and as a citizen in society.
