This work highlights the usefulness of comparative law in the harmonization of current legal systems. The function of comparative law focuses on the use of the comparative method, as a previous step towards harmonization. The comparison may lead to finding equality, similarity of identity of legal reasons, being a decisive step to design a system that contains a new reason, which is the product of a combination of the reasons of the different legal systems that are the object of the harmonization process. This is the reason why comparative law helps to recognize and understand other perspectives, oscillating between explanation and understanding.
