Hans Kelsen and Max Weber are conventionally understood as the original proponents of two distinct and opposed processes of concept formation generating two separate and contrasting theoretical frameworks for the study of law. The Reconstruction of the Juridico-Political: Affinity and Divergence in Hans Kelsen and Max Weber contests the conventional understanding of the theoretical relationship between Kelsen’s legal positivism and Weber’s sociology of law. Utilising the conceptual frame of the juridico-political, the contributors to this interdisciplinary volume analyse central points of affinity and divergence in the work of these two influential figures. Thus, the chapters collected in The Reconstruction of the Juridico-Political offer a comprehensive reconsideration of these affinities and divergences, through a comparison of their respective reconstruction of the notions of democracy, the State, legal rights and the character of law. From this reconsideration a more complex understanding of their theoretical relationship emerges combined with a renewed emphasis upon the continued contemporary relevance of the work of Kelsen and Weber.

English summary: In February 1919, Max Weber was offered a professorship at the Faculty of Law in Bonn, but he chose instead an offer of a social science professorship in Munich. Would we think of him any differently today if he had accepted the Bonn appointment? Weber had completed an academic legal training, and although he later changed disciplines, his legal background, especially his interest in constitutional law, left a clear mark on his work. In Weimar leading legal theorists such as Carl Schmitt, Hermann Heller, Hans Kelsen and Rudolf Smend were often ambivalent in their relationship to Weber. Andreas Anter shows which lawyers had been important to Weber, and how he ultimately became a central point of reference for constitutional theory. Weber had contributed to the drafting of the Weimar Constitution. Can his influence still be traced in the present German constitutional law? How is he dealt with by current constitutional theory? And to what extent does his work remain relevant to solving today's problems? German description: Im Februar 1919 erhielt Max Weber einen Ruf an die Juristische Fakultat in Bonn, ubernahm dann aber doch eine gesellschaftswissenschaftliche Professur in Munchen. Ware sein heutiges Bild ein anderes, wenn er sich fur Bonn entschieden hatte? Weber war habilitierter Jurist. Obwohl er spater die Disziplin wechselte, ist sein Werk voller Belege dafur, wie stark er von der Jurisprudenz, nicht zuletzt von der Staatsrechtslehre, gepragt war. In Weimar standen ihm fuhrende Staatsrechtler wie Carl Schmitt, Hermann Heller, Hans Kelsen und Rudolf Smend oft ambivalent gegenuber. Andreas Anter zeigt, welche Autoren fur Weber wichtig waren und wie er schliesslich zu einem Referenzautor der Staatsrechtslehre wurde. Als Berater wirkte Weber am Entwurf der Weimarer Reichsverfassung mit. Finden sich seine Spuren noch im Grundgesetz? Wie wird er in der heutigen Staatsrechtslehre rezipiert? Inwieweit ist er fur die Losung heutiger Probleme relevant?

This book critically examines the conception of legal science and the nature of law developed by Hans Kelsen. It provides a single, dedicated space for a range of established European scholars to engage with the influential work of this Austrian jurist, legal philosopher, and political philosopher. The introduction provides a thematization of the Kelsenian notion of law as a legal science. Divided into six parts, the chapter contributions feature distinct levels of analysis. Overall, the structure of the book provides a sustained reflection upon central aspects of Kelsenian legal science and the nature of law. Parts one and two examine the validity of the project of Kelsenian legal science with particular reference to the social fact thesis, the notion of a science of positive law and the specifically Kelsenian concept of the basic norm (Grundnorm). The next three parts engage in a critical analysis of the relationship of Kelsenian legal science to constitutionalism, practical reason, and human rights. The last part involves an examination of the continued pertinence of Kelsenian legal science as a theory of the nature of law with a particular focus upon contemporary non-positivist theories of law. The conclusion discusses the increasing distance of contemporary theories of legal positivism from a Kelsenian notion of legal science in its consideration of the nature of law.

Das Jahrbuch Soziale Interaktion bietet dem Forschungs- und Denkstil des Symbolischen Interaktionismus im deutschen Sprachraum eine Plattform. Seit den 1970er Jahren liegen die entsprechenden Referenztexte von George Herbert Mead, Herbert Blumer, Erving Goffman oder Anselm Strauss in Übersetzung vor. Auch sind in den letzten fünfzig Jahren eine Reihe von davon angeleiteten Untersuchungen entstanden, aber vom Entstehen einer Forschungslandschaft kann in der deutschsprachigen Soziologie keine Rede sein. Hierzu will diese Publikation ihre Dienste leisten.
