Download PDF by Lisa Bender: Neutralität als Mittel der Sicherheitsgewährleistung: Über

By Lisa Bender

Die Auflösung der Blöcke im Jahre 1990 hat eine grundlegende Veränderung der internationalen Sicherheitssituation hervorgerufen: Es entstanden neue Arten von Bedrohungen und neue Wege, diesen zu begegnen. In der Beobachtung, dass Neutralität als Phänomen der Sicherheitspolitik diesen Wegen primary entgegenzustehen scheint, findet Lisa Bender ihren Ausgangspunkt. Dem in der Literatur vorherrschenden statischen Begriffsverständnis setzt sie entgegen, dass Neutralität sich stets veränderten historischen Bedingungen wie der organization des Staates und der shape der Konfliktaustragung angepasst hat. Vor diesem Hintergrund entwickelt sie eine gegenstandsverankerte Vorgehensweise, um nach neuen und veränderten Bedeutungen von Neutralität zu fragen, und so der Frage nachzugehen, was once Neutralität heute ist. Mithilfe der grounded thought generiert sie so aus der Perspektive der Akteure eine Theorie von Neutralität als Mittel der Sicherheitspolitik, das darauf beruht, Andere von der eigenen Friedfertigkeit zu überzeugen.

Download e-book for iPad: Experience and History: Phenomenological Perspectives on the by David Carr

By David Carr

How does historical past manifest itself to us, how does it input our lives, and what are the varieties of event within which it does so? historical past is mostly linked to social life and its earlier, and so Carr probes the event of the social international and of its temporality. adventure during this context connotes not only remark but in addition involvement and interplay: We adventure background not only within the social global round us but in addition in our personal engagement with it.

For numerous many years, philosophers' reflections on heritage were ruled via subject matters: illustration and reminiscence. each one is conceived as a relation to the earlier: illustration might be of the prior, and reminiscence is by way of its nature of the prior. On either one of those bills, background is separated by means of a spot from what it seeks to discover or desires to recognize, and its job is obvious by means of philosophers as that of bridging this hole. This constitutes the matter to which the philosophy of historical past addresses itself: how does background bridge the distance which separates it from its item, the past?

It is by contrast historical past phenomenological procedure, in response to the concept that of expertise, may be proposed as a method of fixing this problem-or not less than addressing it in a manner that takes us past the concept of a niche among current and past.
