Alf Ross

a life

By Jens Evald

Alf Ross (1899-1979) was a well-known Danish legal and moral philosopher, a scholar of international law, and one of the founding fathers of the so-called Scandinavian legal realism. On the surface, the life of Alf Ross might have been considered a fairy tale. Ross had to go through hardship, both in relation to love and work, before he became an internationally known and recognized philosopher and legal scholar. But, the story of Alf Ross is not a fairy tale. It is the story of a man's struggle to greatness and the consequences of such a struggle in his relationship with other people, including his spouse. This book presents the personal and professional life story of Alf Ross.
