Example text

Or, turning this round, what is the significance of the fact that some legal cultures in Europe aim at “counterfactual” ideals rather than “pragmatic reasonableness “(Van Swanningen, 1999)? One way of understanding legal cultures involves appreciating the way they (reflexively) constitute themselves by “difference” (Legrand, 1999). The English common law has long followed this course in relation to the Continent, though this self-understanding has certainly become more complicated after membership of the European Union.

If we were to take the metaphor too seriously it would become impossible to see the differences between a society seeking to import foreign ideas and having such adaptation imposed. The very concreteness of the medical example fails to encompass the complexity of legal transfer as a social process and the importance of subjective factors such as the creation and imposition of meaning (including definitions of “similarity” and “success”). Rather than there being an “objective” contrast between healthy and diseased organs, or between the life and death of the body politic, what we have are claims made by participants or observers within and outwith the society concerned who argue for the “need” for the society to change in certain directions if it is to stay competitive, be seen as having a legitimate political system etc.

For that matter some of these meanings may themselves be considered metaphoric variations on the botanical original. In its most general sense “transplant” could just mean matter “out of place”; but once the question becomes what is involved in deliberately moving foreign bodies, the variety of possible references to such different objects and situations becomes problematic. Many students of legal transfers are particularly attracted by the medical version of the metaphor. Feldman, for example, finds it suggestive to compare the process of seeking legal transfers to the search for a compatible donor so as to provide hope “to ailing members of the world community” (Feldman, 1997).
