problem to be solved

“Contradiction is not primarily a problem to be solved but a motor we cannot do without.”

Martin Nonhoff

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

Gisela Febel

Martin Nonhoff

“The basis of law is not an idea as a systematic unified principle but a paradox.”

Andreas Fischer-Lescano

“Living in contradictions is what we experience every day. Why do we know so little about it?”

Gisela Febel
