Abstract

CHRISTIAN JOERGES Histor y as Non-History : Points of Divergence and Tim e Lags Between Friedrich Kessler an d German Jurisprudenc e I. INTRODUCTION Rather than proffer a detailed biography of Friedrich Kessler, this paper attempts to do justice to the content of his work. To ab­ stract the interpretation of such work from the personal context in which it was produced is not to ignore the varying turning points in Kessler's development. Any such academic milestones are indeed an 2 3 immediate reflection upon his life story. His doctoral thesis of 1927 and "habilitation" dating from the year 1932 were soon followed by two publications on the law of negotiable instruments.
