  1. Third Party Duty of Justice.Kumie Hattori - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 9999 (9999):1-25.
    This paper explores the theoretical basis of the third party’s duty of justice as to grave human rights violations, presenting role obligations as the best complement to the literature. It begins with discussions on agents of justice in duty-based theories, notably O’Neill’s account on global justice, and rights-based theories, which are both included in the institution-centred perspective. I claim that these studies have failed to consider an individual duty bearer’s motive, autonomous reasoning and integrity in relation to justice, all of (...)

    Gewalt und Legitimation – Grundzüge eines unaufhebbaren Missverhältnisses.Burkhard Liebsch - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 9999 (9999):1-23.
    In contrast to the widespread assumption that the state has the monopoly on violence and on the legal use of force, this essay draws attention to forms of violence which cannot be sublated in any political form of life that lays claim to the legitimate use of violence and force. The author asserts that any way of legitimization of violence is suspect of concealing reverse sides of new forms of violence that possibly escape political attention. This insight refers back to (...)

    Hume und der Liberalismus.Sebastian Bender - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):195-216.
    Is Hume a liberal or a conservative? Hume scholars are divided over this question. This paper rejects the widespread reading of Hume as a conservative and argues that Hume is a liberal, even though his version of liberalism is fundamentally different from Lockean liberalism. Hume differs from Locke in that he attempts to justify a liberal political order without appealing to natural rights or a social contract. Instead, his liberalism is deeply rooted in his empiricist epistemology and in his sentimentalist (...)

    Impermissible Targeting of Human Shields.Beba Cibralic - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):171-194.
    An assumption underpinning the literature on human shields is that it is possible to distinguish between a voluntary shield and an involuntary shield. This is a claim I challenge with the purpose of demonstrating that the conventional basis on which we currently determine which human shields are liable to targeting is morally unjustifiable. Given the difficulty in tracking intentions, any presumption on the part of the targeting agent to know ex ante whether a civilian is volunteering to be a shield (...)

    Why Kelsen’s Basic Norm Does not Include a Transition from Is to Ought.Matheus Pelegrino Da Silva - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):231-245.
    The article points to the reasons why Kelsen’s basic norm does not include a transition from is to ought. Alexy’s arguments on why the basic norm would imply a transition from is to ought are presented and discussed. How Hume’s assertions on the impossibility of a transition from is to ought must be seen in the context of Kelsen’s basic norm theory are analyzed. In addition, the question is considered of what sense Hart’s legal theory comprises the idea that a (...)

    Mit den Augen eines befangenen Chronisten.Wolfgang Hellmich - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):259-272.
    This essay examines the surprising turn in Georg Lukács’ thinking from a radical bourgeois intellectual to a dogmatic Marxist and party communist on the bases of his autobiographical writings. What were the reasons? How convincing are these reasons? How consistent at all is Lukács’ thinking? The autobiographical texts show that Lukács has an almost ostentatious need for self-justification. They also show that Lukács after his ideological turn always moves strictly within an imaginary orthodox line of Marxism. He abandons free thought (...)

    Anchoring: The Underestimated Manipulation of Decisions.Ulrich Helm, Catharina Clemens & Salome Kamenetskaia - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):246-258.
    “Anchoring” is a tactic used to manipulate negotiation outcomes. It exploits the fact that people base their estimates of unknown quantities on initial values. If they are given these initial values, their estimations are influened by them. We will address whether there is a rational justification for people to be manipulated by anchoring. We will also look at how to recognize in a negotiation situation whether the anchor effect is being used against you, how to use the anchor effect to (...)

    Hanfei: der politische Realismus in der chinesischen Philosophie.Henrique Schneider - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):273-290.
    Whether for the republican president Sun Yat-sen or for the communist helmsman Mao Zedong, the legalist philosopher Hanfei (韓非), whose works marked the Qin Empire some 2200 years ago, still seems to be a source of inspiration. This paper traces the philosophy of Hanfei as a representative of political realism. In order to do so, these paper proceeds in three steps: First, realism is explained in terms of Hanfei, the “author” himself. Second, it is weighed how far his philosophy represents (...)

    Zwischen Utopie und Dystopie.Martin Welsch - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (2):217-230.
    Utopia and dystopia are brought together by Kant and Rousseau to the point of their indistinguishability: Dystopia is the reverse side of utopia, utopia that of dystopia. The essay traces this structure in Rousseau’s oeuvre – in Julie, the Discourse on Inequality and the Contrat Social – in order to uncover how Kant carried it forward in the Staatsrecht of his late Rechtslehre with regard to modern representative democracy and the problem of popular sovereignty.

    Legitimising the Primacy of Children’s Rights.Marina Lalatta Costerbosa - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (1):8-31.
    The aim of this paper is to show that the legal protection of children must be recognised as a priority. The moral rights of children are fundamental rights with different degrees of generality. They not only reflect the fact that children merit justice, but are also indispensable for the promotion of justice in society in general, thus allowing other rights, including those of adults, to be safeguarded appropriately. The rule of law and its role in reducing violence go hand in (...)

    Falsifying Falsificationist Legal Theory.Pascal Felix Meier - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (1):65-81.
    A number of attempts have been made to conceptualise legal reasoning along falsificationist lines. This paper criticises a recent one by Bernhard Schlink. After familiarising the reader with falsificationism, I argue that falsificationism is premised on an epistemological asymmetry between singular observation statements and universal hypotheses, and that absent such an asymmetry in the context of statutory interpretation, framing jurisprudence in falsificationist terms is unwarranted and misleading. To get off the ground, legal falsificationism would need to combine with some kind (...)

    Globale Hilfspflichten aus dem Geist des Stoizismus?Paul Tiedemann - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109 (1):32-64.
    Until recently, the prevailing view has been that moral duties to global aid can only be justified from the spirit of utilitarianism. Martha Nussbaum attempted to show that these duties can be developed from Stoic ethics. This essay shows that Nussbaum’s attempt has failed. What Nussbaum considers as stoic is in fact based on a religious myth.

    Strafrecht als Integrity.Andreas Werkmeister - 2023 - Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 109:409-432.
    In recent literature, material theories of criminalization, such as the Rechtsgutslehre, are often criticized as undemocratic. The article shows that this critique is based on a simplistic majority model of democracy. Using human dignity-oriented (deliberative) counter-models, in particular Ronald Dworkin’s integrity concept of democracy, the paper explains how the Rechtsgutslehre can be defended and further developed in a liberal democracy.
