summary: between Western literatures, simply the German-speaking nations can boast a listing of world-class writers akin to Goethe, Hoffmann, Kleist, Kafka, Schmitt, and Schlink who have been expert as felony students. but this record basically tricks on the advanced interactions among German legislations and literature. it may be supplemented, for instance, with the original interventions of the felony procedure into literature, starting from makes an attempt to save lots of literature from the tidal wave of Schund (pulp fiction) within the early 20th century to audiences suing theaters over the mistaken construction of classics within the twenty-first. The lengthy record of circumstances the place German literature cites legislation, or the place German legislation serves literature as a precedent, sign the dream of German tradition of a solidarity of pursuits and targets among spheres of job. but the very power of this dream stems from genuine ancient and social approaches that more and more autonomize and separate those domain names from one another. Beebee examines the background of this dialectical stress via shut readings of diverse circumstances within the sleek period, starting from Grimm to Schmitt

Sample text

Habermas, like Luhmann, has developed a complex and totalizing theory of social communication that explains and, to a certain extent, defends the managerial aspects of modern politics and law. Despite his vigorous attempt to differentiate his theory from Luhmann’s, in the eyes of some onlookers the two are not that different. For Andrew Fraser, for example, ‘In providing a philosophical rationale for the managerial revolution, Habermas has begun a new chapter in the intellectual history of enlightened despotism’ (Fraser, ‘Marx for Managerial’, 382).

6 Mind cannot interact directly with society, but only through the formulation of a communication, which unites intention, utterance and understanding. Similarly, societal communications can be profoundly deformed by the autopoietic mechanisms of mind. ‘Though it would appear that society is inhabited by minds, they are merely the environment for a society that consists of communications. But though a social system cannot think; a psychological system cannot communicate’ (Luhmann, Theories of Distinction, 165).

5 One measure of a functioning system’s autonomy is its capacity for autopoiesis, the capacity for producing its own elements. ‘Systems have to use their operations to be able to continue to use their operations to be able, et cetera’ (Luhmann, Theories of Distinction, 103). Dieter Schwanitz gives an interesting if perhaps trivial example of autopoiesis. It is the following sentence: T is the firsT, elevenTh, eighteenTh […] letter in this sentence. E ist dEr ErstE, sEchstE, achtE, zwölftE, viErzEhntE […] Buchstabe in diesem Satz.
