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

Series:

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.

He invites the contemporary thinker to enter into dialogue about the most crucial issues of our time. For this purpose, he builds a philosophical discourse through the mediation of classical philosophy. In the light of Plato’s metaxy he elaborates a very fine political philosophy serving the understanding of the nature of reality. On the one hand, Voegelin does this through diagnosis of various deformations within the historical, political and cultural contexts and, more fundamentally, in human consciousness. On the other hand, he wants to explore...
