Summary For A. F. J. Thibaut, the main concern was a philosophical approach to the interpretation and systematization of the positive Roman Law in his time. In his eyes, the object of a subjective right is an action, not a thing or person. Therefore he was cautious not to use abstractions, definitions, and deductions from dreamt postulates. Regarding the logical texture of an institute of private law as a âGestalt , it follows that the equity of the reason, of a law, for different cases, is the same thing as that âGestalt . The philosophical interpretation of a law is then an interpretation in respect to its âGestalt . Although Thibaut's main concern was the interpretation of the positive Roman Law in his time (the âGemeinrecht ) he did not disregard the history of Roman Law before and especially after Justinian
