This book is concerned with a central question in contemporary legal theory: how to describe global law? In addressing this question, the book brings together two features that are different and yet connected to one another: the conceptual description of contemporary law on the one hand, and methods of taking concrete perspectives on law on the other hand. The book provides a useful concept for describing global law: thinking of law spatially. It illustrates that space is a concept with the capacity to capture the relationality, dynamics, and hybridity of law. Moreover, this book investigates the role of topological thinking in finding concrete perspectives on law. Legal Spaces offers an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to law.

Rechtspluralismus zahlt zu den Schlusselbegriffen der neuen globalen, inter- oder transnationalen Rechtswelt. Aber was bedeutet Rechtspluralismus? Kann und darf Recht plural verfasst sein? Und was folgt aus dem Rechtspluralismus fur die Rechtsgeschichte oder Rechtstheorie, fur Europarecht, Volkerrecht oder Internationales Privatrecht? Ralf Seinecke verfolgt diese Fragen auf verschiedenen Wegen. Er zeichnet die historische Entwicklung des Begriffs seit den 1960er Jahren bis in die Gegenwart nach, legt die verschiedenen historischen, juristischen oder politischen Phanomene des Rechtspluralismus offen und analysiert die Konzeptionen des Rechtspluralismus anhand seiner wichtigsten Theoretiker wie Boaventura de Sousa Santos oder Gunther Teubner. Schliesslich untersucht der Autor den Rechtsbegriff des Rechtspluralismus und zeigt, dass der Pluralismus des Rechts keine Besonderheit der Postmoderne ist, sondern schon die klassische Moderne der Rechtstheorie pragte.

The aim of this book is to critically examine whether it is methodologically possible to combine mathematical rigor – topology with a systematic dialectical methodology in Hegel, and if so, to provide as result of my interpretation the outline of Hegel’s Analysis Situs, also with the proposed models (build on the topological manifold, cobordism, topological data analysis, persistent homology, simplicial complexes and graph theory, to provide an indication of how the merger of Hegel’s dialectical logic and topology may be instrumental to a systematic logician and of how a systematic dialectical logic perspective may help mathematical model builders.

Dem Grundgesetz eignen Normativität und Positivität wie jedem Gesetz. Doch hebt es sich über das einfache Gesetz hinaus kraft seines Vorrangs und seines Selbstands. Der nunmehr vorgelegte Band XII des Handbuchs des Staatsrechts widmet sich zunächst der Normativität der Verfassung. Er zeigt zudem, dass die Verfassung auch den Willen zur Selbstbehauptung gegen innere und äußere Gefahren bekundet. In diesem Sinne ist die Verfassung eine abwehrbereite Demokratie. Der damit angesprochene Schutz der Verfassung ist ebenfalls Thema des vorliegenden Bandes.

The Max Planck Handbooks in European Public Law series describes and analyses the public law of the European legal space, an area that encompasses not only the law of the European Union but also the European Convention on Human Rights and, importantly, the domestic public laws of European states. Recognizing that the ongoing vertical and horizontal processes of European integration make legal comparison the task of our time for both scholars and practitioners, it aims to foster the development of a specifically European legal pluralism and to contribute to the legitimacy and efficiency of European public law. The first volume of the series begins this enterprise with an appraisal of the evolution of the state and its administration, with cross-cutting contributions and also specific country reports. While the former include, among others, treatises on historical antecedents of the concept of European public law, the development of the administrative state as such, the relationship between constitutional and administrative law, and legal conceptions of statehood, the latter focus on states and legal orders as diverse as, e.g., Spain and Hungary or Great Britain and Greece. With this, the book provides access to the systematic foundations, pivotal historic moments, and legal thought of states bound together not only by a common history but also by deep and entrenched normative ties; for the quality of the ius publicum europaeum can be no better than the common understanding European scholars and practitioners have of the law of other states. An understanding thus improved will enable them to operate with the shared skills, knowledge, and values that can bring to fruition the different processes of European integration.

Law and Ecology: New Environmental Foundations contains a series of theoretical and applied perspectives on the connection between law and ecology, which together offer a radical and socially responsive foundation for environmental law. While its legal corpus grows daily, environmental law has not enjoyed the kind of jurisprudential underpinning generally found in other branches of law. This book forges a new ecological jurisprudential foundation for environmental law – where ‘ecological' is understood both in the narrow sense of a more ecosystemic perspective on law, and in the broad sense of critical self-reflection of the mechanisms of environmental law as they operate in a context where boundaries between the human and the non-human are collapsing, and where the traditional distinction between ecocentrism and anthropocentrism is recast. Addressing current debates, including the intellectual property of bioresources; the protection of biodiversity in view of tribal land demands; the ethics of genetically modified organisms; the redefinition of the 'human' through feminist and technological research; the spatial/geographical boundaries of environmental jurisdiction; and the postcolonial geographies of pollution – Law and Ecology redefines the way environmental law is perceived, theorised and applied. It also constitutes a radical challenge to the traditionally human-centred frameworks and concerns of legal theory.
