About the Digital Paul Scholten Project

The Digital Paul Scholten Project (DPSP) is a Digitization, Translation and Publication project. It is dedicated to the legacy of legal scholar Paul Scholten, who lectured at the University of Amsterdam from 1906 until 1945. His work was of central importance for the development of Dutch legal philosophy in the 20th century. His influential perspective on legal methodology aligns with the historical roots of pragmatic Dutch legal culture and is of increasing relevance today, also beyond the Netherlands.

The DPSP research compares Scholten’s writings with other legal philosophical texts across time, countries, and disciplines. An International Paul Scholten Symposium, with a specific theme, is organized regularly. Paper version books will be published on specific themes, bringing together the related Website and e-Journal contributions.
