Son of the poet and novelist of the same name, Oliver Wendell Holmes was born on March 8, 1841 in Boston. He was confederate soldier during the Civil War and was wounded three times. Sensing that his duty lay elsewhere, he left the army before the end of the war to continue his education. On his return he began studying law at Harvard University and once it was accomplished he became a professor at the same university. He then delivers a great many conferences. By giving lectures and seminars at the Lowell Institute in 1880, he developed an analysis of the Common Law. These texts will be grouped in 1881 and be considered as one of the best American legal work. Holmes indeed develops a new approach to sociological and realistic jurisprudence that animated his later career as a judge. It is influenced by the Darwinian Theory; it applies to the field of law, thus often adopting a scientific approach, but also by the liberalism of Emerson, a writer friend of his father.
