Abstract

The legitimacy of the state’s authority is in crisis, as one is informed from all quarters. The future of representative democracy is in danger, and the era of post-democracy has been proclaimed. One of the most pressing constitutional and policy discussions in recent years has accordingly been whether, and to what extent, the representative system has reached its limits and how democracy can be revitalised. The debate has been ignited at the parliamentary as well as at the administrative level. This phenomenon can be observed in Germany and South Africa alike.Despite the differences between South Africa and Germany, both States’ constitutions provide for a federal parliamentary system and a powerful constitutional court.The conference proceedings develop possible solutions for solving the challenges to the principle of democracy. After the initial diagnosis of the loss of the legitimation of the representative state, possible cures inherent in the representative system itself are explored. In a further step, it is asked to what extent more participation on the legislative as well as the executive level can help to strengthen the legitimation of the state.

Abstract

After 1918 Germany had to find a new definition for its identity on a political and social level as well as to rediscover itself as a unity in terms of geography and culture. This process can be described as „Inner colonisation“. Scientists and artists began to compensate the many losses by tapping into the dimension of the „inner“ Germany - its unique cultural density - which in France would be called „la France profonde“. The pressure to be economical was converted into an economy of abundance of spiritual and material wealth. The newly discovered virtue of variety could be explained in short by phrases and slogans. However, this book addresses all those texts and images which emerged from an „Arbeit im Material“ (Siegfried Kracauer) and from a fresh, authentic experience

Abstract

The volume presents a collection of papers which clearly document a theological paradigm shift during the decades after World War II. Protestant, Catholic and Jewish experts from various specialist fields of theology, such as biblical scholarship (Old Testament and New Testament), liturgics, feminist and systematic theology, as well as Jewish studies provide a diverse picture of the theological change from anti-Jewish polemics to a respectful dialogue with Judaism. Moreover, the publication offers an insight into the biographical developments of the scholars involved, and through this a piece of reflective history of theology.
