limits

“Resistance is a democratic right, sometimes a duty. With literature we can find models for this right and think about its limits.”

Gisela Febel

Julia Lossau

Gisela Febel

“The history of Western philosophy can be understood as a sustained engagement with contradiction.”

Norman Sieroka

“If social contradictions are reflected in law, law cannot form a hierarchy of norms free of contradictions.”
