Rule of Law und institutioneller Wandel: Vertragsstabilität und Vertragsdurchsetzung in Osteuropa


Edited By Herbert Küpper and Friedrich-Christian Schroeder

Die Beiträge in diesem Band bilden den juristischen Teil des interdisziplinären rechts- und wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Forschungsprojekts „Offenheit und institutioneller Wandel: Das Beispiel der Rule of Law". Das Buch untersucht die Wechselwirkung von außenwirtschaftlicher Öffnung und Liberalisierung im Vertragsrecht anhand des Umbruchs in Osteuropa. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes sind Länderstudien einerseits zu der Öffnung des außenwirtschaftlichen Vertragsrechts als dem Weltmarkt besonders ausgesetzter Regelungsmaterie. Andererseits untersuchen sie als Gegenprobe den Wandel im Arbeitsvertragsrecht, denn der Arbeitsvertrag ist auch in marktwirtschaftlichen Systemen ein besonders stark regulierter Vertragstyp.

We also consult and make references to other important texts depending on their relevance to our project. This includes the use of correspondence which has been not much present in critical literature on Voegelin. We tried also to consult all available publications, either books or articles, that discuss in a significant way the question of metaxy in Voegelin. Because these texts are not many—in fact, they are very few—we find our task to present integrally the origin, development and application of metaxy in Voegelin to be an important contribution to scholarship on this philosopher. The critical evaluation of Voegelin’s manifold philosophical discussions is not the scope of this publication. We are sure that, from the perspective of critical analysis of the history of philosophy, there could be found many problems of interpretation, such as his view of Husserl’s phenomenology, his interpretation of Gnosticism or especially his problematic interpretation of Hegel’s philosophy. We recognize the need to address these questions, but we consider them only insofar as they are relevant to our research, without discussing them in detail. They are considered, rather, to set up the context situating the meaning and use of metaxy. Philosophical meditation, history, political...
