Selbstbetrachtungen illustriert

Genre: Philosophy

Die Selbstbetrachtungen des römischen Kaisers Mark Aurel sind die letzte bedeutende Hinterlassenschaft aus der philosophischen Schule der jüngeren Stoa. Maßgebliche Richtschnur für das eigene Denken und Handeln waren ihm die Einordnung in und die Übereinstimmung mit der „Allnatur“. Vernunftleitung und Gemeinwohlorientierung gehören zu den in zahlreichen Wendungen variierten Konstanten der Selbstbetrachtungen, zu denen Mark Aurel auch die Rückwirkungen seines Amtes auf die eigene Person antrieben: „Verkaisere nicht!“

English summary: This 'liber amicorum' for Peter Schlosser contains contributions written by internationally well-known specialists in the field of international civil procedure and arbitration. The articles concentrate on controversial issues such as transborder cooperation, international jurisdiction, enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards, especially in regard to European legislation and international conventions. They focus on very delicate subject matters such as neutrality of arbitrators, taking evidence abroad and the limits of national sovereignty. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage sind zwei wesentlichen Arbeitsgebieten des Jubilars gewidmet, dem internationalen Verfahrensrecht und der Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Aus diesen Bereichen werden aktuelle und grundsatzliche Probleme von weltweit anerkannten Spezialisten diskutiert. Im Vordergrund stehen die Probleme grenzuberschreitender Sachverhalte bei der Rechtsdurchsetzung, sei es im Bereich der staatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit, sei es in der alternativen Streitbeilegung, insbesondere der internationalen Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Die Thematik gewinnt durch die Europaische Rechtsetzungskompetenz und Gesetzgebung neben den internationalen Konventionen, insbesondere den Bemuhungen der Haager Konferenz um einheitliche Regelungen fur transnationale Probleme, neue Dimensionen. Themen wie der neue Europaische Vollstreckungstitel uber unbestrittene Forderungen, die besonderen Probleme der Brussel II a-Verordnung, der Entwurf eines Haager Ubereinkommens uber die Gerichtsstandswahl stehen neben Grundsatzfragen wie Armut der Schiedspartei, Neutralitat des Schiedsrichters, Anerkennungsproblemen bei einer Scheidung nach judischem Recht und Fragen aus dem Bereich des europaisch-amerikanischen Justizkonflikts. Die Beitrage spiegeln die internationale Diskussion in aktuellen und sensiblen Bereichen des internationalen Verfahrensrechts im weitesten Sinne.

Pnin

Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783644056510
Release Date: 2017-07-21
Genre: Fiction

Der zerstreute Professor Timofey Pnin ist ein einsamer Individualist, den der American Way of Life tief verstört. Der Immigrant wirkt auf seine Umwelt wie ein komischer Versager. Aber seine Würde, sein Ernst, seine Persönlichkeit lassen ebendiese Umwelt lächerlich erscheinen: Sie versagt an ihm. Alles, was Pnin widerfährt, macht uns diesen altmodischen russischen Gelehrten liebenswert. «Ein Wunderwerk des Humors. Ein Jahrhundertroman.» (Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Der Spiegel)
