Diskursive Konstituierung von Kulturlandschaft am Beispiel politischer Windenergiediskurse in Deutschland

poststrukturalistischer Sicht keine in sich geschlossenen Ganzheiten, keine universellen Gedankengebäude und keine völlig konsistenten Diskurse geben kann, aber dass man als Autor natürlich bestrebt ist, eine logische und in sich schlüssige Argumentation vorzulegen. In Anbetracht dessen wird Schreiben zu einem selbstreflexiven Prozess, bei dem die Autoren die Begrenztheit des eigenen Blickwinkels, die Relativität der Erkenntnisse und letztlich auch das eigene Scheitern stets mitdenken ( Stäheli 2000 : 7; Harrison 2007 : 590 f.). 2 Theoretischer Rahmen 2.1 Bedeutung Es geht uns

Arguments Used for Restricting International Real Property Transactions: Case Study of Latvia

Abstract

There is a wide range of factors - political, economic, legal, etc., which either limit or promote international real property transactions. It is considered that real property alienation to foreigners enhances foreign investment and economic development, however, some countries tend to limit such transactions. The current research provides a scientific view to reveal the reasons why certain countries impose different kinds of restrictions on international real property transactions. The objectives of this publication are: 1) to find out and analyse the existing arguments and reasons for limiting international real property transactions; 2) to determine the number and volume of international real property transactions in Latvia; 3) to identify the main argumentation for the current step and significant decline of international real property transactions in Latvia. Empirical analysis based on the review of scientific publications, statistical and comparative analysis of real property transactions are the main methods employed for this research.

Super Mario Strikes Back: Another Molinist Reply to Welty’s Gunslingers Argument

Abstract

Molinists generally see Calvinism as possessing certain liabilities from which Molinism is immune. For example, Molinists have traditionally rejected Calvinism, in part, because it allegedly makes God the author of sin. According to Molina, we ‘should not infer that He is in any way a cause of sin’. However, Greg Welty has recently argued by way of his Gunslingers Argument that, when it comes to God’s relationship to evil, Molinism is susceptible to the same liabilities as Calvinism. If his argument is successful, he has undercut, at least partially, justification for believing in Molinism. While I concede that Welty’s argument is successful in that it does undercut some justification for believing in Molinism, this concession does not entail that, as it relates to the problem of evil, the Calvinist and the Molinist are in the same epistemic position. In this article, I argue that, when it comes to God’s relationship to evil, the Molinist is in a superior epistemic situation to the Calvinist. I do this in two steps. First, I argue for what I call the Robust Felix Culpa Theodicy. Second, I argue that the Robust Felix Culpa Theodicy is incompatible with Calvinism.
