Carl Schmitt Reloaded
Otto Depenheuer und der "Rechtsstaat"
Schlagworte:Schmitt, Recht, Staat, Terrorismus
Otto Depenheuer, who teaches public law in Germany, is rather influential among German conservative politicians, like for example the present minister of the interior. The article shows that the conceptual approach of the conservative catholic Depenheuer depends nearly completely on the lessons taught by Carl Schmitt, who played a crucial role in the development of the Nazi's conception of law and state.
