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.

Drawing on Voegelin’s metaxology, we also show the possibility of a pragmatic application of the notion of metaxy as we try to elaborate a plurivocal and interdisciplinary philosophy in metaxological perspective.

In our study so far we tried to show how Voegelin’s position had been changing in the course of time. He was intellectually honest and humble enough to recognize the need to revise and even to change his views once new evidence and scientific data convinced him that certain theories he had sustained up to certain point were untenable anymore. His philosophy represents openness of thinking and readiness to correct his philosophical position.1 He kept a distance from his own philosophical positions, recognizing that they should not be treated as an exhaustive or definitive way of dealing with problems, but as something that needs to be approached with critical honesty. He chose to practice a form of reflective distance in his philosophical meditation and anamnetic exegesis. This distance was also necessary in maintaining the balance of consciousness and in his hermeneutical philosophy when dealing with many philosophical patterns of interpretation which he had to reevaluate by anamnetic return to...
