Since the national legal systems and legal cultures diverse, the question is raised whether the jurisprudence should concern itself more with the legal cultural context of a given meta-legal study. The issues and outcomes of a particular legal socio-philosophical study carry the problems and problematizations that are relevant for the societal, legal and academic world of the scholar concerned. Scholars such as John Rawls, Martha Nussbaum and Richard Posner may deserve to join the first ranks of the American academic world, but what is their contribution to the issues and debates of the European legal cultures and the Dutch legal culture in particular? I plea for more diversity in selecting and reading the works of scholars from abroad. In demonstrating the need for diversity the work of Alain Supiot is discussed.
