Die deutsche Vergangenheit vor Gericht Im Winter 1963 begann vor den Augen der Weltöffentlichkeit der erste Auschwitz-Prozess, die größte und wichtigste juristische Aufarbeitung des Holocaust. Devin Pendas erzählt auf Basis umfangreicher Quellenforschung die Geschichte dieses Verfahrens, das die Öffentlichkeit spaltete und bei dem nicht nur 22 NS-Täter, sondern auch die deutsche Vergangenheit vor Gericht standen. Viele Jahre mussten vergehen, bis eine deutsche Staatsanwaltschaft nach dem Krieg erstmals umfassende Ermittlungen gegen die Verbrechen einleitete, die im Vernichtungslager Auschwitz begangen worden waren. Es sollte der größte Strafprozess der deutschen Nachkriegsgeschichte werden. Angeklagt waren SS-Ärzte und Lager-Aufseher. Hunderte von Zeugen wurden vernommen. Verhandelt wurde auch über die Unterstützung Hitlers durch weite Kreise der deutschen Bevölkerung, über Verdrängen und Erinnern – und nicht zuletzt über das schwierige Leben derjenigen, die den Holocaust überlebt hatten. Devin Pendas zeigt, wie die bundesdeutsche Gesellschaft in diesem Prozess mit dem Holocaust konfrontiert wurde. Sein Buch berichtet eindrücklich aus dem Frankfurter Schwurgerichtssaal, Täter wie Opfer erhalten durch seine detailreiche Darstellung ein Gesicht. Ein Stück deutscher Geschichte, bei dem das Recht an seine Grenzen stieß.

Nach Jacques Derrida und Niklas Luhmann: Zur (Un-)Möglichkeit einer Gesellschaftstheorie der Gerechtigkeit

Gegenber der aktuellen sozial- und rechtsphilosophischen Debatte zur Gerechtigkeit, die zwischen den Polen der Universalitt und der Alteritt oszilliert, arbeiten die Autoren des Bandes eine dritte, eine sozialtheoretische, Argumentationslinie heraus. Ausgangspunkt sind die Paradoxien des Rechts, wie sie von Jacques Derrida und Niklas Luhmann formuliert worden sind. In Luhmanns "Kontingenzformel des Rechts" erscheint Gerechtigkeit nicht primr als philosophische Frage, sondern als konkrete Praxis der jeweiligen Selbstbeschreibungen des Rechtssystems, welche die bloe Konsistenz des Recht bersteigt und sich an den Anforderungen der Umwelten des Rechts orientiert. Die Autoren des Bandes konfrontieren die Luhmannsche Kontingenzformel mit dem Gerechtigkeitskonzept von Derrida, die auf eine Transzendenz des Rechts in ganz anderer Richtung zielt. Diese ist fr die Rechtsoperationen prinzipiell nicht erreichbar, ihren Anforderungen aber sind sie stndig und ohne Ausweichmglichkeit ausgesetzt. Was ergibt sich aus dieser Konfrontation fr die Neuformulierung von Grundbegriffen des Rechts: Gerechtigkeit, Rechtssubjektivitt, subjektives Recht, Rechtsgenese, Rechtsargumentation?

Prelude to Nuremberg

Allied War Crimes Policy and the Question of Punishment

Between November 1945 and October 1946, the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg tried some of the most notorious political and military figures of Nazi Germany. The issue of punishing war criminals was widely discussed by the leaders of the Allied nations, however, well before the end of the war. As Arieh Kochavi demonstrates, the policies finally adopted, including the institution of the Nuremberg trials, represented the culmination of a complicated process rooted in the domestic and international politics of the war years. Drawing on extensive research, Kochavi painstakingly reconstructs the deliberations that went on in Washington and London at a time when the Germans were perpetrating their worst crimes. He also examines the roles of the Polish and Czech governments-in-exile, the Soviets, and the United Nations War Crimes Commission in the formulation of a joint policy on war crimes, as well as the neutral governments' stand on the question of asylum for war criminals. This compelling account thereby sheds new light on one of the most important and least understood aspects of World War II.

The Escape of the Mind

Author: Howard Rachlin PhD

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199322376

Category: Psychology

Page: 224

View: 1901

The Escape of the Mind is part of a current movement in psychology and philosophy of mind that calls into question what is perhaps our most basic, most cherished, and universally accepted belief--that our minds are inside of our bodies. Howard Rachlin adopts the counterintuitive position that our minds, conscious and unconscious, lie not where our firmest (yet unsupported) introspections tell us they are, but in how we actually behave over the long run. Perhaps paradoxically, the book argues that our introspections, no matter how positive we are about them, tell us absolutely nothing about our minds. The name of the present version of this approach to the mind is "teleological behaviorism." The approaches of teleological behaviorism will be useful in the science of individual behavior for developing methods of self-control and in the science of social behavior for developing social cooperation. Without in any way denigrating the many contributions of neuroscience to human welfare, The Escape of the Mind argues that neuroscience, like introspection, is not a royal road to the understanding of the mind. Where then should we look to explain a present act that is clearly caused by the mind? Teleological behaviorism says to look not in the spatial recesses of the nervous system (not to the mechanism underlying the act) but in the temporal recesses of past and future overt behavior (to the pattern of which the act is a part). But scientific usefulness is not the only reason for adopting teleological behaviorism. The final two chapters on IBM's computer, Watson (how it deviates from humanity and how it would have to be altered to make it human), and on shaping a coherent self, provide a framework for a secular morality based on teleological behaviorism.

"Witnesses to Nuremberg: An Oral History of American Participants at the War Crimes Trials brings this historic event into focus on a very personal level. Oral historians Bruce M. Stave and Michele Palmer, with the assistance of Leslie Frank, have conducted a series of interviews with Americans who were involved in the trials and, through eleven compelling oral histories, get behind the scenes to recreate the American community at Nuremberg. These first person accounts humanize history as readers share the experiences of American prosecutors, security personnel, journalists, and even the architect who designed the courtroom. Since the interviewees represent average people and not the "stars" of Nuremberg, their voices speak directly to the reader in terms that a modern audience can understand." "This latest addition to Twayne's Oral History Series allows us to come face-to-face with the Nazi defendants, learn about interactions with ordinary German citizens, and reflect upon the meaning of justice in the post-World War II world. Suitable for the classroom as well as the general reader, this volume recreates a historic reckoning that the world can ill afford to forget."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

My American Journey

“A great American success story . . . an endearing and well-written book.”—The New York Times Book Review Colin Powell is the embodiment of the American dream. He was born in Harlem to immigrant parents from Jamaica. He knew the rough life of the streets. He overcame a barely average start at school. Then he joined the Army. The rest is history—Vietnam, the Pentagon, Panama, Desert Storm—but a history that until now has been known only on the surface. Here, for the first time, Colin Powell himself tells us how it happened, in a memoir distinguished by a heartfelt love of country and family, warm good humor, and a soldier's directness. My American Journey is the powerful story of a life well lived and well told. It is also a view from the mountaintop of the political landscape of America. At a time when Americans feel disenchanted with their leaders, General Powell's passionate views on family, personal responsibility, and, in his own words, "the greatness of America and the opportunities it offers" inspire hope and present a blueprint for the future. An utterly absorbing account, it is history with a vision. Praise for My American Journey “The stirring, only-in-America story of one determined man's journey from the South Bronx to directing the mightiest of military forces . . . Fascinating.”—The Washington Post Book World “Eloquent.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Profound and moving . . . Must reading for anyone who wants to reaffirm his faith in the promise of America.”—Jack Kemp, The Wall Street Journal “A book that is much like its subject—articulate, confident, impressive, but unpretentious and witty. . . . Whether you are a political junkie, a military buff, or just interested in a good story, My American Journey is a book well worth reading.”—San Diego Union Tribune “Colin Powell's candid, introspective autobiography is a joy for all with an appetite for well-written political and social commentary.”—The Detroit News

The Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial, 1963-1965

Genocide, History, and the Limits of the Law

The Frankfurt Auschwitz trial was the largest, most public, and most important trial of Holocaust perpetrators conducted in West German courts. Drawing on a wide range of archival sources, Devin O. Pendas provides a comprehensive history of this momentous event. Situating the trial in a thorough analysis of West German criminal law, the book argues that in confronting systematic, state-sponsored genocide, the Frankfurt court ran up against the limits of law. This book provides a compelling account of the divided response to the trial among the West German public.
