3. The interest in Kischel's publication is evidenced by over twenty-three book reviews in legal journals and in the press across nearly all the continents. See Uwe Kischel, ‘Publications’ <https://rsf.uni-greifswald.de/storages/uni-greifswald/fakultaet/rsf/lehrstuehle/ls-kischel/Schriften/Publications_05-2019_mit_Links.pdf> accessed 26 Feb 2020.
7. However, the functional method has many faces. See Michaels, Ralf, ‘The Functional Method of Comparative Law’ in Reimann, Mathias & Zimmermann, Reinhard (eds), The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Law (2nd edn, Oxford University Press 2019) 345–389Google Scholar.

On the paradoxical similarities of both methodological approaches, see Husa, Jaakko, ‘Methodology of Comparative Law Today: From Paradoxes to Flexibility?’ (2006) 58 Revue internationale de droit comparé 1095, 1095–1117CrossRefGoogle Scholar; Valcke, Catherine & Grellette, Matthew, ‘Three Functions of Function in Comparative Legal Studies’, in Adams, Maurice & Heirbaut, Dirk (eds), The Method and Culture of Comparative Law: Essays in Honour of Mark Van Hoecke (Hart 2014) 105–106Google Scholar.
9. However, Uwe Kischel is not the only proponent of contextuality in comparative law. He was preceded at least by Marieke Oderkerk, Mathias Siems, and Jaakko Husa. cf Oderkerk, Marianne, ‘The Importance of Context: Selecting Legal Systems in Comparative Legal Research’ (2001) 48 Netherlands International Law Review 293, 293–318CrossRefGoogle Scholar; Siems, Mathias, Comparative Law (Cambridge University Press 2018) 10–11CrossRefGoogle Scholar; Husa, ‘Methodology’ (n 8) 1111.

13. cf Nelken, David, ‘Using the Concept of Legal Culture’ (2004) 29 Australian Journal of Legal Philosophy 1Google Scholar. It is interesting, however, that Kischel judges ‘legal culture’ to be insufficient as a tool for legal comparison, distracting researchers from focusing on normative issues (p 220). cf Cotterrell, Roger, ‘The Concept of Legal Culture’, in Nelken, David (ed), Comparing Legal Cultures (Routledge 1997) 13Google Scholar.
