    Das Widerstandsrecht in der Behandlung von Samuel von Pufendorfs De Iure Naturae Et Gentium Und De Officio Hominis Et Civis.Jan Dobelmann - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (4):487-508.
    For quite some time Samuel of Pufendorf is considered to be one of the early representative of a balanced philosophy of state concerning his discussion of a right to resist. The article examines this estimation in an examination of Pufendorf ’s De iure naturae et gentium and the consequential work De officio hominis et civis. For this purpose in an initial step the rights of subjects and Pufendorf ’s valuation of them will be examined; subsequently the monarch’s rights are being (...)

    Billigkeit, Klugheit Und Moralische Quantität der Handlung in Samuel Pufendorfs Rechtslehre.Vanda Fiorillo - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (4):509-531.
    The present essay intends to reconstruct the fundamental function of the juridical-formal procedure, carried out by equity in Samuel Pufendorf ’s legal theory, aiming at the adequate application of the positive norm to an exceptional case. To this end, equity conveys the moral contents of the natural law within the positive one, especially if the latter presents gaps or is in contradiction with the former. The essay also examines the characteristics of the equitable judgement, conceived by Pufendorf in the form (...)

    Crimen Publicum, Poena Forensis Reassessing Kant’s Theory of Criminal Law, in Line with Contemporary Philosophy of Punishment Debates.Stergios Mitas - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (4):554-562.
    Philosophical debates on punishment mainly - and exhaustively - revolve around the traditional dipole “retribution - deterrence”; or, lately, seek for some alternative counterproposal. In all sides of the debates, Kant is standardly depicted as the advocate of a traditional, outmost punitive theory of justice; the kind of heritage modern-day “retributivists” seek to reassess, while “preventive” or “restorative” justice defenders aim to abandon. In the present paper, we intend to scrutinize Kant’s own views on crime and punishment, as an integral (...)

    Rechtsgenese Und Zivilisationsprozess Eine Sozialtheoretische Betrachtung.Thorsten Benkel & Christoph Nienhaus - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):406-426.
    On the basis of comparative views on social theories that deal with the normative foundations of modern societies, the genesis of law is examined in the light of Norbert Elias’ reflexions on the process of civilization. One crucial element is the surmounting of the traditional division between micro and macro structures, which, in Elias’ thought, can be achieved by taking into account the relation between sociogenesis and psychogenesis. The psychogenetic development serves as main focus, which - with regard also to (...)

    Institute, Unterprinzipien Und Normen Eine Neuinterpretation der Institutionellen Theorie des Rechts.Leonardo di Carlo - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):427-443.
    This paper will develop a new reading of the institutional pattern. According to this interpretation, legal norms exist only inside of legal institutions - on the assumption that law consists of legal institutions and that legal norms should have meaning and normative force only inside of them. At this basic idea the thesis, which this paper proposes, tries to connect Robert Alexy’s concept of normative optimization of principles to the institutional theory: legal norms as optimization of principles, which shape a (...)

    Niklas Luhmann’s Theory of Power An Essay on Luhmann’s Early Works “Macht” and “Macht Im System”.Paul Konertz - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):384-405.
    Niklas Luhmann is particularly known for his sociological systems theory. He is less well known as a power theorist. In the early works “Macht im System” and “Macht”, he presents a comprehensive understanding of power that deviates considerably from prevailing concepts. For Luhmann, power is not an ability or a human quality. For him, power is part of the communication process and a central aspect of his early systems theory as a communication medium. For a better understanding, Luhmann’s concept of (...)

    Was Heißt Evolution des Rechts? Kann Die Systemtheorie Sich Auf Neue Erscheinungsformen des Rechts in Netzwerken der Praxis Einstellen?H. C. Karl-Heinz Ladeur - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):368-383.
    Niklas Luhmann’s theory of evolution is focused on the internal complexity of a system which brings a lot of varieties of possibilities into play, although it is capable of avoiding the idea of an external causation with the consequence of adaptation to innovation. Such an assumption would not be compatible with the construction of the autopoiesis of systems. Upon the basis of this idea, disruptive processes of societal transformation are also supposed to be unable to impede the construction and preservation (...)

    Hegels Theorie des Krieges Vom Rechtsphilosophischen Realismus Zum Geschichtsphilosophischen Ausblick.Kiho Nahm - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):444-464.
    Hegel is neither a worshiper of the war nor remains a realist who sees right-philosophically in its inescapability. This paper seeks to explain, in the light of his philosophy of history, the reasonable necessity of overcoming the war. According to Hegel, war, if inevitable, is desirable only as separate from the civic spheres and without personal hatred, but it has right-philosophically the significance of being the ethical moment in realizing the ideality of state unity. But this realization must also be (...)

    Dignity, Development, and the Gravity of Child Soldiering.Renée Nicole Souris - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):465-475.
    This paper critically examines two formulations of the view that the crime of using child soldiers is less serious than other international crimes. The first formulation presents a sociological argument that using child soldiers is not as serious as other international crimes involving rape or murder, and the second formulation relies on deontological moral norms to argue that using child soldiers is less serious than crimes involving murder because child soldiering does not violate fundamental human values, like the right to (...)

    Staatliche Neutralität, Moralischer Pluralismus Und Die Parlamentarische Entscheidung Zum Assistierten Suizid.Alexander Schöpke - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):353-367.
    The neutrality of a state towards different theories of its citizens’ conceptions of the good life is an essential core of liberal, pluralistic constitutions. The purpose of this article is to analyze the extent to which various types of neutrality stated in the German constitution were respected in the parliamentary decision on assisted suicide. The author finds that the German Bundestag did not act in a sufficiently neutral way with regard to opportunities and justification when parliament made its decision to (...)

    Sacrificium Intellectus?Wolfgang van den Daele - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (3):317-352.
    Christian theology conceives of ‘sacrificium intellectus’ to account for the message of Saint Paul that he will “take every thought captive to obey Christ”. Human insight gives way to the revealed truths of religion. In modern western cultures to explain the natural world has become the domain of science, and the imposition of collective rules of how we should live was shifted to democratically elected parliaments. In Germany legislation of bioethical issues is often justified with reasons that violate standards of (...)

    The notion of moral imputation has so far received little attention in the reception of the Kantian work. Owing to a traceable reduction in the literal meaning of the notion of deed, a concept which is vital for the operation of imputation, resulting in the modern notion of fact, it was so far overseen, that the notion of freedom, which is already presupposed as determining factor in the Kantian notion of imputation, is itself based on a relation of imputation that (...)

    How to Justify the Competence to Control Immigration?Johan Rochel - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (2):189-213.
    This paper is a contribution to the political and legal theory on immigration. It proposes a revised justification of a political community’s competence to control immigration which draws upon both Pevnick’s account of “associative ownership” and Blake’s account of the responsibility to guarantee fundamental rights. I outline an argument structured around the concept of “jurisdiction” as delimiting a political and legal area. The internal and external dimensions of this jurisdiction are cumulative parts of the justification proposed. In the internal dimension, (...)

    The Insatiable Democracy.Sibylle Van der Walt - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (2):172-188.
    Since the Brexit-vote and the election of a far-right business man as President of the United State, the social sciences have been struggling to explain the societal conditions that nourish the increasing appeal of populist parties and leaders in the Western world. The article reconstructs the potential of Margaret Canovan’s work for a sociological approach towards populism. With Canovan, it is possible to focus research on the emotional appeal of the populists’ call on ‘the people’. Reconstructing this emotional appeal does (...)

    Diversity, Democracy, and Culture.Matt Watson - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (2):214-227.
    This article asks whether it is morally acceptable for a liberal democratic state to consider refugees’ religious beliefs when determining which refugees it will allow to resettle in its territory. I examine four arguments that might be advanced to defend such religious discrimination: i) that it is not even pro tanto wrongful; ii) that refugee resettlement is a supererogatory act, and therefore the way in which a state might choose to engage in it cannot be a proper subject of moral (...)

    Forming a state is still a necessary task which is difficult from both a practical and a philosophical point of view. State building requires a return to the human world; trust must be built and responsibility must be recognizable in state action. This appears to be taken for granted in the modern age; the not self-evident only results from an open discussion about the possibility of a renewed, renewing formation of the state. Confidence in the state includes historical insights and (...)

    Populist Resistance Against the European Liberal Democratic Order.Carla Zoethout - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (2):155-171.
    This paper focusses on populist resistance against the EU and the European Convention of Human Rights, in Hungary and the UK. Both countries seem to voice a more general quest away from Europeanization and towards more national sovereignty, which will undoubtedly result in important constitutional changes in the coming years. In this paper, I shall first of all study the notion of populism in general as it manifests itself in many countries in the West. Secondly, the focus is on Hungary (...)

    We argue that legal argumentation, as the subject matter as well as a special subfield of Argumentation Studies, has to be examined by making skilled use of the full panoply of tools such as argumentation and story schemes which are at the forefront of current work in AS. In reviewing the literature, we make explicit our own methodological choices and then illustrate the implications of such an approach through the analysis of a case study in the English law of evidence.

    Freedom and Law.Alfonso Ballesteros - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (1):19-28.
    Freedom and law in Hannah Arendt’s thought are not spontaneously compatible and one might think they are almost impossible to occur together. Due to the importance of both freedom and law this might be considered Arendt’s greatest puzzle. Many scholars have addressed this problem but few have paid attention to the answers to this difficulty she found in political events and to the eventual solution to this puzzle, the phenomenon of civil disobedience. This paper aims to address this gap.

    To secure individual freedom by granting equal rights is a central achievement of the Rule of Law. A gap does, however, remain between the equality of rights and the inequality of economic resources. Soviet lawyer Evgeny B. Pashukanis formulated in 1924 that it is the law which, through the abstractness of its language and institutions, allows those rich in power and possession to disguise their material interests. In his opinion, the transformation from capitalism to communism would inevitably require all law (...)

    This paper looks into the writings of Jürgen Rödig on legal logic with the aim of identifying those results which still appear to be essential contributions to legal theory. Of particular relevance are the reasons why propositional and predicate logic in its classsical form should be considered adequate and by and large sufficient to represent formal legal reasoning. Other issues discussed in this paper are Rödig’s views concerning specifically legal variants of logical arguments, the axiomatic method in legal theory, ways (...)

    The Will Theory of Rights and Criminal Law.Elisa Moser - 2020 - Archiv für Rechts- Und Sozialphilosophie 106 (1):55-74.
    The will theory of rights has so far been considered incapable of accounting for individual rights in criminal law. Adherents of the theory, therefore, defend the claim that criminal law does not assign rights to individuals. In this article I argue that criminal law in fact does assign rights to individuals and that the will theory of rights may enhance our understanding of these rights. I admit that if the theory is understood as a descriptive account, it cannot encompass rights (...)

It considers in particular the main pragmatist theses underlying their work, namely anti-metaphysics, anti-skepticism, fallibilism and objectivity as conditioned by practice, as well as their account of truth.It then examines an approach which takes Rawls’ epistemology as “anti-foundationalist” and argues that, to the extent that this qualification is connected to deliberative democracy, it should not be accepted without reservation as an adequate (...)
