Abstract

Richard Kearney is one of the leading global thinkers in both Continental philosophy and post-metaphysical philosophy of religion, as well as an esteemed Irish professor in philosophy, currently teaching at Boston College, Massachusetts, USA. Professor Kearney first visited South Africa in May as joint visiting academic of the Universities of Stellenbosch, Pretoria and North-West. The visit prompted the publication of this scholarly collected work, authored by South African and international scholars. These specialists in philosophy and religious studies analysed Kearney’s influential work and brought his scholarly perspectives into dialogue with other leading thinkers in the field, both from Africa and abroad. This publication will be the first collective attempt to engage his work from the perspective of the African continent. This collected work contributes significantly in an interdisciplinary way to Ricoeurdian studies. The target audience of the book is peers and specialists in the field of Continental philosophy and philosophy of religion.

Abstract

East German science fiction enabled its authors to create a subversive space in another time and place. One of the country’s most popular genres, it outlined futures that often went beyond the party’s official version. Many utopian stories provided a corrective vision, intended to preserve and improve upon East German communism. This study is an introduction to East German science fiction. The book begins with a chapter on German science fiction before 1949. It then spans the entire existence of the country (1949-1990) and outlines key topics essential to understanding the genre: popular literature, socialist realism, censorship, fandom, and international science fiction. An in-depth discussion addresses notions of high and low literature, elements of the fantastic and utopia as critical narrative strategies, ideology and realism in East German literature, gender, and the relation between literature and science. Through a close textual analysis of three science fiction novels, the author expands East German literary history to include science fiction as a valuable source for developing a multi-faceted understanding of the country’s short history. Finally, an epilogue notes new titles and developments since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Abstract

Das in der EU für Aktiengesellschaften kodifizierte Kapitalschutzsystem ist unter Rechtfertigungsdruck geraten und steht vor tiefgreifenden Veränderungen. Es sieht bisher neben der Aufbringung eines Mindestkapitals vielfältige Kapitalaufbringungs- und Kapitalerhaltungsregeln vor, die auf vom Vorsichtsprinzip geprägte Rechnungslegungsdaten im Einzelabschluss zurückgreifen. Auf der Annahme basierend, dass sich der Trend zur IFRS-Bilanzierung in Europa in den nächsten Jahren fortsetzen und zunehmend auch den Einzelabschluss betreffen wird, sind Vorschläge zur Reform des tradierten Gläubigerschutzsystems durch bilanzielle Kapitalerhaltung vorgelegt worden, die sich weitgehend an US-amerikanischen Kapitalschutzregulierungen orientieren. Nach den Plänen der EU-Kommission könnte es möglicherweise bereits 2009 zu einem Systemwechsel kommen. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden in dieser Arbeit unter anderem die Kapitalschutzregeln des Model Business Corporations Act und der Kapitalgesellschaftsrechte Delawares und Kaliforniens detailliert analysiert und aus ökonomischer Sicht kritisch beurteilt.
