Rechtsordnung und Ethik der Solidarität (Deutsche by Gerd Irrlitz PDF

By Gerd Irrlitz

ISBN-10: 3050045507

ISBN-13: 9783050045504

In dieser Monographie wird, beginnend mit einem biographischen und zeitgeschichtlichen Grundriss, zum ersten Mal das umfangreiche strafrechtliche, rechtsphilosophische und philosophische Gesamtwerk Arthur Baumgartens dargestellt. Baumgarten battle im Jahr seiner bei Franz v. Liszt verteidigten Dissertation (1909) nach Genf berufen worden und lehrte in Köln, Basel, Frankfurt/M. und Berlin. Von der dreiteiligen "Wissenschaft vom Recht" (1922) urteilte Albrecht Mendelssohn Bartholdy im "Archiv des öffentlichen Rechts", hier sei die Jurisprudenz auf Philosophie gegründet, und die Lehre Baumgartens werde neben Stammler und Nelson die stärkste Wirkung aufs Rechtsdenken gewinnen. Mit seinen philosophischen Schriften wurde Baumgarten, beeinflusst von James und Dewey, in den zwanziger und dreißiger Jahren des vergangenen Jahrhunderts ein Vordenker des sozialliberalen Pragmatismus in der deutschen Philosophie und nahm deren Hinwendung zur angloamerikanischen philosophischen culture um Jahrzehnte vorweg. 1933 erklärte er, unterm NS-Regime nicht Rechtwissenschaft lehren zu können, und ging von Frankfurt in die Schweizer Emigration. Die Erfahrung von Faschismus und Krieg führte ihn in der Mitte der vierziger Jahre zu sozialistischen Überzeugungen und Erwartungen und zur Marxschen sozialwissenschaftlichen Methode, so dass er, nach Frankfurt nicht zurückberufen, gleich anderen antifaschistischen Intellektuellen in die Ostzone und spätere DDR zog. Gerd Irrlitz behandelt die Hauptwerke und die marxistisch orientierten Texte Baumgartens – wie überhaupt die sozialliberale und die späte sozialistische Periode – nicht als Gegensätze, sondern als aufeinander bezogene und einander bedingende Konzepte, überzeugt, dass das Werk des Rechtsphilosophen unterm Erfordernis der Erneuerung des sozialen Liberalismus in der hochindustriellen Zivilisation neue Aktualität gewinnen kann.

By Julia Kulewatz

ISBN-10: 3640182529

ISBN-13: 9783640182527

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts / Gegenwart, observe: 1,3, Universität Erfurt, Veranstaltung: Philosophie der Literatur, nine Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Wie ist es möglich, dass fiktionale Ereignisse emotionale Reaktionen hervorrufen können? Sind es dieselben emotionalen Reaktionen, die wir leben, wenn wir auf ein nicht fiktives Ereignis reagieren? Ist Kendall L. Waltons Theorie von sogenannten „Quasi- Emotionen“, einem „So-tun-als-ob“, in das sich der Rezipient fügt, tatsächlich haltbar? Empfinden wir beim Lesen fiktionaler Literatur nicht mehr als, um es mit Waltons Worten zu formulieren, „Quasi- Anteilnahme"? Oder hat sich der Rezipient mit Hilfe derartiger Empfindungen bereits innerhalb der Fiktion verloren und ist unfähig, Realität von Fiktion zu unterscheiden? - Die Philosophie der Literatur sucht nach klärenden Ansätzen. Diese Arbeit soll dazu beitragen, den Zusammenhang von Fiktion und Emotion näher zu erläutern. Außerdem untersucht sie den Lösungsansatz Waltons, der nicht von genuinen emotionalen Reaktionen, sondern von „Quasi- Emotionen“, ausgeht.
