GoergIn 1838 a German law professor discovered an animal that biology has never heard of. His feat was acknowledged as being one of history’s boldest examples of legal reasoning, but ill feelings on the part of more established colleagues prevented its positive reception. The professor went on to become one of the most renowned legal scholars of his day, but his discovery fell into oblivion. Now it is time to revisit and extend this research.
