Description
In order to develop a suitable methodology of comparative law, one needs a better view on the the methodology of legal scholarship within domestic legal systems, Also, within the context of the current debate on the scientific status of legal scholarship, the question arises as to what kind of discipline legal doctrine is (or should be) and which kind of scientific methodology is most appropriate for what kind of legal research. Here, we are faced with diverging traditions of legal scholarship (eg United Kingdom versus Continental Europe) and diverging underlying theories of 'legal science' in the course of history: a 'positive moral science' (natural law tradition), a discipline aiming at discovering the will of the (historical) legislator (exegetic school), an interdisciplinary discipline (law in context), a social science (legal scholarship as an empirical discipline), a conceptual structure (Begriffsjurisprudenz), a normative 'imputation discipline', clearly distinguishing 'is' and 'ought' (Kelsen), etc. All this could lead to the following questions:
In general:
(a)  linking specific approaches and specific methods, on the basis of the various types of
       research and other distinctions mentioned hereafter;
(b)  or scrutinising more deeply one of these approaches or methods, as applied to legal
        research in a domestic or comparative context.
