legal philosophy in the 20th century

Uta Bindreiter

pp. 697-737


The evolution of legal philosophy in Sweden in the first half of the 20th century basically coincides with the history of the so-called Uppsala School, which will be treated extensively in Tome 2 of this volume, in the part devoted to legal realism. Here I will be dealing with Swedish legal philosophy after that period, from the early 1940s onward, when the hitherto dominant influence of the philosophy advanced by the Uppsala school was definitely on the decline.
