  5. Georg D. Blind & Stefania Lottanti von Mandach, Decades Not Lost, but Won: Increased Employment, Higher Wages, and More Equal Opportunities in the Japanese Labour Market.
    We take a fresh analytical look at the developments in the Japanese labour market over the last two decades and provide answers to three key questions: first, was regular employment replaced by non-regular employment on an aggregate level in general and at the expense of younger generations in particular? Second, how do today’s labour market outcomes compare to the heydays of the Japanese economy, i.e. to the late 1980s? Third, have wage gaps between men and women as well as between (...)

  10. Elena Lange, Failed Abstraction - The Problem of Uno Kōzō's Reading of Marx's Theory of the Value Form.
    Uno Kōzō was Japan’s foremost Marxian economist. His critique of Marx’s method in Capital, especially regarding the ‘premature’ introduction of value-form analysis in Volume I, motivated him to rewrite all three volumes of Capital in his book The Principles of Political Economy .Notwithstanding Uno’s increasing popularity in international Marx research, I will present a critical paper that looks at a fundamental misunderstanding in Uno’s reading of the value form. In what is one of the most significant discussions of the value (...)

  11. P. Hollenbach & K. N. Ruwanpura, Symbolic Gestures: The Development Terrain of Post-Tsunami Villages in Sri Lanka.
    This article analyses how rituals and ceremonies were deployed in the post-tsunami rehabilitation process in Sri Lanka to ‘incorporate’ development projects into the habitus and social reality of local communities. It argues that even though the aid delivery process is represented as a gift, in reality it is more concerned with strengthening the social capital of the local and foreign donors. Through this process there is an expectation and an implicit demand for acquiescence from the beneficiaries, which leaves them with (...)

  12. Benedikt Korf, S. Habullah, P. Hollenbach & B. Klem, The Gift of Disaster: The Commodification of Good Intentions in Post-Tsunami Sri Lanka.
    This paper analyses the commodification of post-tsunami aid in Sri Lanka, a process that ‘contaminated’ the ‘purity’ of good intentions with the politics of patronage and international aid. It argues that gifts are not just material transfers of ‘aid’, but also embodiments of cultural symbolism, social power, and political affiliations. The tsunami gift re-enforced and reconfigured exchange relationships among different patrons and clients in Sri Lankan communities, perpetuating the political economy that has driven social conflict and discontent in the post-independence (...)

  14. Georg Blind & Andreas Pyka, Erich Schneider: The Admiring Disciple Who Did Not Become a Follower.
    Erich Schneider, by 17 years a junior of Schumpeter’s, entered academics via a detour of teaching in a secondary school after obtaining his PhD in mathematics. Both his early teaching experience, and his background in mathematics exerted formative influences on his later work. No lesser figure than Schumpeter himself, whom he met while obtaining his academic teaching qualification at the University of Bonn, reportedly prophesized Schneider to become “the new preceptor of Germany” .This provides noteworthy evidence of both Schumpeter’s deep (...)

  17. Robert Leach, A Religion of the Book? On Sacred Texts in Hinduism.
    In this article I provide an overview of the identity, role and function of sacred texts in Hinduism. Hinduism’s tremendous diversity extends to the numerous ways in which different types of texts have been identified as sacred and used by Hindu practitioners. It would be a mistake to attempt to summarise the role of sacred texts in the lives of Hindus, since different texts have had different roles and performed different functions. In the following, therefore, I address what I identify (...)

  26. Rafael Ferber, Key Concepts in Philosophy: An Introduction.
    The book provides an introduction to six key concepts in philosophy - philosophy, language, knowledge, truth, being and good. At the same time, it aims to initiate its readers into the process of philosophical thinking. The book is addressed to students and laypeople, but also contains new ideas for specialists. It is written in a clear, accessible and engaging style, and its author 'shares, and manages to convey, something of Plato's own commitment to philosophy'.

  27. Andrea Riemenschnitter, Another Modest Proposal? Science and Seriality in Mo Yan’s Novel Wa.
    European Enlightenment thought was the privileged model upon which intellectuals built a Chinese modernity since the decline of the Qing dynasty in the late nineteenth century. Aesthetically, a turn towards literary realism was successfully implemented. These Western legacies dominated the literary field until they lost their persuasive power in the 1990s. Beyond cultural production, the entanglements of a nation in transition with Eurocentric ideological paradigms influenced statecraft and nationalistic thought to our days. In his novel Frogs Mo Yan revisits the (...)

  32. Stefan Riegelnik, Contextualism and the Use-Mention Distinction.
    The use-mention distinction is considered as a fundamental concept in the philosophy of language. So it goes without doubt that a comprehensive theory of language has to account for this distinction. In this paper I explore what it means to account for such a distinction and I argue that the main ideas of contextualist theories of language are in conflict with the distinction in question.

    Battlefield euthanasia, the purposeful killing of wounded soldiers (or even civi- lians) in order to hasten their foreseeable death, has been an issue in military medicine and in soldiers’ moral codes at all times. During conflicts since anti- quity, there have been severely wounded who would not die immediately but whose fate seemed clear, nevertheless. But can it ever be morally justified to kill those wounded out of mercy in order to end their suffering? Can death ever be the better (...)

    The present article explores the applicability of the term “rhetoric” in a non-Western context and, in particular, the legitimacy of such an attempt in the case of Early China, where the Warring States period is traditionally considered as the golden age of early Chinese “rhetoric”. The pre-imperial and early imperial received literature provides good evidence for the employment of a well-established and clearly defined set of argumentative techniques in everyday political practice in ancient China. No handbook on such techniques has (...)

  51. Martin Beckstein, What Does It Take to Be a True Conservative?
    Is there any reason to discriminate among the rival claims self-proclaimed conservatives make for being truly conservative? This article argues that at least some of these claims can legitimately be dismissed by an independent third. Drawing on and critically interrogating the theories of conservatism provided by Huntington, Oakeshott, as well as Brennan and Hamlin, this article argues that many characterizations of conservatism mistake contingent circumstances explaining why people historically were or conceivably might be reluctant to promote social change for a (...)

    On reflecting about the prospects of advancing the egalitarian cause in the United States, John Roemer makes the case for more traditional strategies than the coupon socialism model he advocated in earlier work. First of all, he suggests, an ethos of solidarity must be developed and the super-rich be subjected to higher taxation. This comment assesses this proposal. On the one hand it is discussed whether the ethos of solidarity Roemer calls for in order to counteract the culture of greed (...)

  59. Francis Cheneval & Johan Rochel, An Ethical View on Remittances and Labor Migration.
    The present contribution defends that remittances should be taken into account and integrated into an ethical framework on migration. This main thesis is two-fold. First, we argue that if a normative approach to migration is to claim practical relevance, it should integrate remittances as a relevant empirical parameter into an ethical framework. The empirical assessment of the scientific evidence available on remittances therefore proves to be extremely important. Secondly, assuming that remittances have to be taken seriously, we consider their positive (...)

There is a pro tanto reason for doing so given the human rights violations associated with dangerous climate change. The article focuses on fending off two objections against a duty to take up the slack: (...)

  70. Francis Cheneval, Constituting the Dêmoi Democratically.
    The original constitution of the dêmos by democratic means (dêmos problem) is a fundamental problem for normative democratic theory. In this paper, I make an assessment of different solutions to the dêmos problem that have been presented in recent literature. I find that none of them is adequate, and thus hold that the dêmos problem remains unresolved. At the end of the paper, I propose a constellation in which multiple dêmoi are thought to be constituted at the same time. I (...)

    This paper assesses the theory, first voiced by Schelling and Kant, according to which an infinite historical process will lead to cosmopolitan institutions.The assessment will mainly be done on the basis of theories about infinitely repeated games. The first part of the paper reconstructs “infinitesimal” historical cosmopolitanism as proposed by Schelling and Kant. The second part confronts this position with the results of the theory of infinitely repeated games among groups. The third part offers reflections on additional conditions and contingencies (...)

Its authors explore the many different ways 'public intellectuals' have debated Europe - the EU and its periphery - within distinct epistemological, disciplinary, ideological and above all national traditions. The chapters focus on the post-1989 era but with a view to the long history of the 'European idea' and its variants across the continent. To what extent such ideas frame the attitude of European publics is left open. (...)

  80. Simona Alba Grano, China’s Environmental Crisis: Why Should We Care?
    In this essay1 I address the main problems regarding Chinese environmental pollution and the failure, at least up until now, to enact a series of regulations able to solve or at least partially “revert” the current situation. Why, eventhough Chinese environmental laws have standards as high as those of their American counterparts, do they fail to curb these problems? My contention is that laws are present but not enforced; which is expecially true at the local level where economic growth is (...)

  82. Georg Blind, Investigating Entrepreneurial Spirit with the Rule Approach: Why Self-Employment is on the Decline in Japan.
    This paper investigates the determinants of entrepreneurial spirit as measured by parental preference of self-employment for male heirs in Japan since 1992 through a statistical analysis. In addition to the relevance of our findings for entrepreneurship research, this empirical study serves as a showcase for the rule approach of Dopfer and Potts in applied research. It helps to understand how self-employment has become a less and less desirable occupational choice since the abandonment of Japan’s high growth path in the early (...)

  84. Georg Blind & Patrick Ziltener, Free Trade Live: Insights From the Switzerland-Japan Free Trade and Economic Partnership Agreement.
    Five years upon entry into force, this research conducts a three level analysis of the effects of the Switzerland-Japan Free Trade and Economic Partnership Agreement. A macro analysis comparing the development of relative volumes of trade, i.e., the flow of goods whose trade has been effectively liberalized by FTEPA and the flow of goods not affected by the FTEPA documents a significant increase growth differential for Swiss exports into Japan, but not vice versa. A subsequent meso analysis of customs data (...)

  86. Andrea Riemenschnitter, The Revindication of Environmental Subjectivity: Chinese Landscape Aesthetics Between Crisis and Creativity.
    This paper studies cultural representations which critically address the high level of environmental degradation ushered in by successive regimes of China's modernization. On the one hand, it will review a group of blog cartoons reacting to a recent environmental hazard, the Huangpu River floating pigs incident, which were published beginning from mid-March 2013. On the other hand, it looks at intellectual responses to a political economy of short-term profit extraction whose negative impact far exceeds the destruction of the nation's landscapes. (...)

  87. Simona Alba Grano, Perception of Risk Towards Nuclear Energy in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
    This article investigates the differences in the public reaction to the Fukushima disaster in Taiwan and Hong Kong, focusing on the public’s perception of risk. This study shows that in both places weaker groups, such as civil society opposition groups and activists, have fewer outlets to disseminate their ideas and are thus easily overpowered by dominant ideologies pushed forward by probusiness groups and governments. Nevertheless, a closer look at local specificities will bring to light significant differences between social activists’ and (...)

    The article is the shortened english version of the article "Was und wie hat Sokrates gewusst? Elenchos: Rivista di studi sul pensiero antico, 28, 5-39. First: it states a set of seven "knowledge-claims" made by Socrates: 1. There is a distinction between right opinion and knowledge.2. Virtue is knowledge. 3. Nobody does willingly wrong. 4. To do injustice is the greatest evil for the wrongdoer himself. 5. An even greater evil is if the wrongdoer is not punished. 6. The just (...)

    This is the abbreviated and slightly revised English version of my paper “Moralische Urteile als Beschreibungen institutioneller Tatsachen. Unterwegs zu einer Theorie moralischer Urteile“, in: Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 79, 1993, 372-392. It deals with the question of what a moral judgment is. On the one hand, a satisfactory theory of moral judgments must take into account the descriptive character of moral judgments and the realistic language of morals. On the other hand, it must also meet the non-descriptive character (...)

  100. Stefan Riegelnik, "Having Identified an Utterance..." - Predication and Interpretation.
    What is it for predicates to mean what they do and what is their contribution to the meaning of an utterance? It is exactly this question to which Davidson dedicates his book "Truth and Predication" (2005). Most commentators focus on Davidson's discussion of failed accounts, in particular of Frege's account. In contrast to this tendency, I focus here on Davidson's own account. The structure is as follows. First, I sketch the problem of predication and I glance at Davidson's discussion of (...)
