The guest editors have the final say in the production of the Special Issue.

The Digital Paul Scholten Project (DPSP) is a Digitization, Translation and Publication project, financed till 2020 by the University of Amsterdam. It is dedicated to the legacy of Paul Scholten, who lectured at the University of Amsterdam from 1906 till 1945 and developed a unique point of view on legal methodology, which aligns with the historical roots of the Dutch pragmatic legal culture.

The DPSP research compares Scholten’s writings with other legal philosophical texts across time, countries and disciplines. Yearly a Paul Scholten Symposium is organized with a specific theme.

DPSP Annual is an e-Journal which publishes not only the Symposia contributions but also creates a publication platform for new translations of Paul Scholten’s writings and for articles which discuss his works in international context. DPSP Special Issues are books containing selections of texts from different volumes of DPSP Annual, tailored to a Symposium theme.


DPSP Special Issues no 1 contains the annotated and adapted English translation of the most important Dutch text on legal philosophy of the twentieth century: General Method. The translation is accompanied by an introductive analysis of the contemporary topicality of the theory of Paul Scholten. Further the Special Issues contains information about Paul Scholten and all contributions to the first three DPSP Symposia which were submitted for publication.
