JOHN J. COLLINS Scriptures and Sectarianism

Essays on the Dead Sea Scrolls

The sectarian movement described in the Dead Sea Scrolls arose from disputes about the interpretation of Scripture. John J.

Auf der Suche nach der Ökonomie

Historische Annäherungen

Herausgegeben von Christof Dejung, Monika Dommann und Daniel Speich Chassé

[In Search of Economics. Historical Approaches]

What is economics? Where should we search for it? And how could we recognize it? From a historical perspective, the assumption of a timelessly discernible economic sphere is questionable, or at least a subject worthy of study. The authors take a historical perspective to explore the extent to which the understanding of economics will change if the access to economics does not come from the concepts of neoclassical economic theory but rather through the back door of history.   ( learn more | Reading Sample )


Grundrechte als Phänomene kollektiver Ordnung

Zur Wiedergewinnung des Gesellschaftlichen in der Grundrechtstheorie und Grundrechtsdogmatik

Herausgegeben von Thomas Vesting, Stefan Korioth und Ino Augsberg

[Basic Rights as a Phenomenon of Collective Order. Reclaiming Sociability in Basic Rights Theory and Doctrine]

The prevailing interpretation of basic rights equates all those legal positions protected as basic rights with individual rights. The main point of reference is the autonomous individual. "Collective" or "institutional" aspects of the constitutional protection of basic rights that transcend this dimension are seen as merely secondary phenomena, derived from the primarily relevant phenomenon of individual freedom. The contributions to this volume challenge this popular perspective. They pose the question of the extent to which traditional constitutional theory and doctrinal approaches systematically undervalue trans-subjective social elements embodied in basic rights.   (learn more...)

Autonomie und Normativität

Zu Hegels Rechtsphilosophie

Herausgegeben von Kurt Seelmann und Benno Zabel

[Autonomy and Normativity. On Hegel’s Philosophy of Law]

Autonomy and normativity are key concepts of today’s world. Nevertheless their significance for the legitimation of modern communities has remained controversial.
