This review essay consists of four parts which are the introduction, a dense personal presentation of Glenn's basic ideas, a demonstration of the (epistemic) problem of exclusion of other, and a resolution in which the themes of this article are gathered together and a further contemplation over the theme is presented.

Keywords: Comparative Law, Legal Traditions
