This book is a translation of a classic work of modern social and political thought, Elements of the Philosophy of Right. Hegel's last major published work, is an attempt to systematize ethical theory, natural right, the philosophy of law, political theory and the sociology of the modern state into the framework of Hegel's philosophy of history. Hegel's work has been interpreted in radically different ways, influencing many political movements from far right to far left, and is widely perceived as central to the communication tradition in modern ethical, social and political thought. This edition includes extensive editorial material informing the reader of the historical background of Hegel's text, and explaining his allusions to Roman law and other sources, making use of lecture materials which have only recently become available. The new translation is literal, readable and consistent, and will be informative and scholarly enough to serve the needs of students and specialists alike.

Zur Kritik der Hegelschen Rechts-Philosophie ist eine Schrift von Karl Marx aus den Jahren 1843 und 1844. Sie besteht aus einer von März bis August 1843 verfassten Kritik des Hegelschen Staatsrechts, die 1927 erstmals veröffentlicht wurde, und einer Ende 1843 bis Januar 1844 entstandenen Einleitung, die im Jahr 1844 erschien. Ersterer Text ist auch als Kreuznacher Manuskript bekannt. Dieser berühmte Text erschien 1844 in den Deutsch-Französischen Jahrbüchern. Marx geht in dieser Kritik der "deutschen Zustände" von der Religion aus, welche er als "Opium des Volkes" bezeichnet (womit er eine Formulierung von Heinrich Heine zuspitzte). Doch im Sinne der Emanzipation ist über eine "Kritik des Himmels" hinaus für Marx eine "Kritik der Politik" notwendig, welche nicht alleine durch die Philosophie, sondern nur durch das Handeln der Klasse des Proletariats erfolgen könne. Dem Bild Hegels von der Philosophie als der "Eule der Minerva", die "erst mit der einbrechenden Dämmerung ihren Flug" beginnt, setzt Marx am Ende seiner Einleitung das "Schmettern des gallischen Hahns" entgegen, durch welches, "wenn alle innern Bedingungen erfüllt sind", der "deutsche Auferstehungstag" verkündet werde. Karl Marx (1818-1883) war ein deutscher Philosoph, Ökonom, Gesellschaftstheoretiker, politischer Journalist, Protagonist der Arbeiterbewegung sowie Kritiker der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft und der Religion. Zusammen mit Friedrich Engels wurde er zum einflussreichsten Theoretiker des Sozialismus und Kommunismus.

Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right, one of the classic texts of German Idealism, is a seminal work of legal, social and political philosophy that has generated very different interpretations since its publication in 1821. Written with the advantage of historical distance, the essays in this volume adopt a fresh perspective that makes readers aware of the breadth and depth of this classic work. The themes of the essays reflect the continuing relevance of the text, and include Hegel's method, the concept of property, Hegel's view of morality, the concept of Sittlichkeit, the modern family, the nature and tensions of civil society, and the question of the modernity of the Hegelian state. The volume will be of interest to all scholars and students of German Idealism and the history of political thought.

Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy Of Right'

This book is a complete translation of Marx's critical commentary on paragraphs 261-313 of Hegel's major work in political theory. In this text Marx subjects Hegel's doctrine on the internal constitution of the state to a lengthy analysis. It was Marx's first attempt to expose and criticize Hegel's philosophy in general and his political philosophy in particular. It also represents his early efforts to criticize existing political institutions and to clarify the relations between the political and economic aspects of society. The Critique provides textual evidence in support of the argument that Marx's early writings do not exhibit radically different doctrinal principles and theoretical and practical concerns from his later work. This edition also includes a translation of the introduction Marx wrote for his proposed revised version of the Critique which he never completed. In a substantial introduction, Professor O'Malley provides valuable information on Marx's intellectual development.

The Image before the Weapon

a critical history of the distinction between combatant and civilian

Since at least the Middle Ages, the laws of war have distinguished between combatants and civilians under an injunction now formally known as the principle of distinction. The principle of distinction is invoked in contemporary conflicts as if there were an unmistakable and sure distinction to be made between combatant and civilian. As is so brutally evident in armed conflicts, it is precisely the distinction between civilian and combatant, upon which the protection of civilians is founded, cannot be taken as self-evident or stable. Helen M. Kinsella documents that the history of international humanitarian law itself admits the difficulty of such a distinction. In The Image Before the Weapon, Kinsella explores the evolution of the concept of the civilian and how it has been applied in warfare. A series of discourses-including gender, innocence, and civilization- have shaped the legal, military, and historical understandings of the civilian and she documents how these discourses converge at particular junctures to demarcate the difference between civilian and combatant. Engaging with works on the law of war from the earliest thinkers in the Western tradition, including St. Thomas Aquinas and Christine de Pisan, to contemporary figures such as James Turner Johnson and Michael Walzer, Kinsella identifies the foundational ambiguities and inconsistencies in the principle of distinction, as well as the significant role played by Christian concepts of mercy and charity. She then turns to the definition and treatment of civilians in specific armed conflicts: the American Civil War and the U.S.-Indian Wars of the nineteenth century, and the civil wars of Guatemala and El Salvador in the 1980s. Finally, she analyzes the two modern treaties most influential for the principle of distinction: the 1949 IV Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Times of War and the 1977 Protocols Additional to the 1949 Conventions, which for the first time formally defined the civilian within international law. She shows how the experiences of the two world wars, but particularly World War II, and the Algerian war of independence affected these subsequent codifications of the laws of war. As recognition grows that compliance with the principle of distinction to limit violence against civilians depends on a firmer grasp of its legal, political, and historical evolution, The Image before the Weapon is a timely intervention in debates about how best to protect civilian populations.

Vom Nutzen und Nachteil der Historie für das Leben

Die Historie ist mehr als nur Geschichtsschreibung und -forschung: sie ist ein Antrieb für das Lebens, motiviert es und liefert das Sinngerüst. Nietzsche hält kein Plädoyer gegen die Geschichte, sondern betont, dass Geschichte unverzichtbar ist für ein kultur- und wertorientiertes Leben. Gleichzeitig darf sich das Leben nicht der Geschichte beugen, muss in der Gegenwart stehen und zielgerichtet die Zukunft im Auge behalten. Nietzsche verlangt mit der Neuorientierung der Historie einen neuen Begriff der Kultur, der - wie vieles bei ihm - auf der Vorstellung des antiken Eros beruht. So bedeutet Genealogie für Nietzsche nicht historische Forschung, sondern kritische Erklärung von Gegenwartsphänomenen anhand theoretischer Ableitungen aus der Geschichte. Im Mittelpunkt steht eine »Deplausibilisierung« (E. Müller) bisheriger Narrative durch historisch gestützte psychologische Thesen. Großen Einfluss hat dieses Konzept Nietzsches auf Michel Foucault.

Gans ranks at the head of that important group of Hegelian thinkers that bridged the generations of Hegel and Marx. ! Yet there is a large gap between Gans 's historical importance and the scholarship on him. Despite a renewal of interest in Gans's work on the Continent,2 Gans remains almost completely unknown to English-Ianguage scholars, and almost none ofhis work has been 3 previously translated. His Prefaces to his posthumous editions of Hegel's writings are inaccessib1e to English speakers, despite the fact that they shed important light on the authenticity of the so-called Additions to those texts. His Preface to Hegel's Philosophy ofLaw has never been translated before, while his Preface to the Philosophy of History has been omitted from reprintings 4 for generations. Moreover, the recent scholarship on the Continent has focused on Gans 's political and philosophical rather than his legal writings. There is little dis cussion in any language ofhis system oflaw, which is the focus ofthe present study. Some of the reasons for the neglect of Gans are obvious. Gans cannot be a hero for most readers today. He accepted apostasy as a means to profes sional advancement. And though more liberal than Hegel, Gans nonetheless accommodated himself to the results of the Restoration and evaded political persecution that might have kindled the sympathy of later generations.
