As a young man in 1934 Pierre Marcel set himself - under the inspirational leadership of his teacher Auguste Lecerf - to master the Christian philosophy of the Dutch professor of law from Amsterdam. His ultimate aim was to translate the Dutchman's magnum opus - De Wijsbegeerte der Wetsidee - into French for the benefit of French-speaking Christians.
The second thesis : General Theory of the Law Spheres: Introduction to the theory of the temporal structure of reality in Herman Dooyeweerd's Philosophy of the Law-Idea, was completed four years later and for which he was awarded the degree of Doctor en Theologie.

We plan to publish both volumes in both French and English over the next two or three years. The French versions should be available by the end of 2010. They will be available for sale in printed form, as well as freely available as .pdf files to download. The .pdf files will be exact replicas of the printed editions.
