Юбилей Вернера Кравица

Антонов М. В., Королев С. В., Поляков А. В.

This paper is dedicated to the 80th jubilee of a leading German legal scholar, theorist and philosopher of law Werner Krawietz. This thinker is famous not only due to his important contribution to development of the philosophical and sociological conceptions of law in the Western legal tradition, but also due to his active role in promotion of the German-Russian partnership in the sphere of legal studies. In the first part of this paper the authors accentuate this role of Professor Krawietz who is a cofounder of the International Center of German-Russian legal studies, a coordinator of some German-Russian educational programs, an active participant of scientific events held in Russia on the problems of jurisprudence. A particular attention is paid to the activities of Professor Krawietz as an editor-in-chief of the journal “Rechtstheorie” where many innovative works in legal logic, sociology of law and methodology of legal studies are published. In the second part the authors describe the scientific biography of Professor Krawietz, drawing lecturers’ attention to the continuity between his ideas and the conception of his predecessor at the Westphalian University, Helmut Schelsky. In the third part the authors succinctly characterize the scientific symposium at the Westphalian University which was held to celebrate the jubilee of Professor Krawietz. The authors especially distinguish the presentation of Professor Krawietz who in a very picturesque manner described his scientific objectives.социал
