Comparative History and Legal Theory: Carl Schmitt in the First German Democracy

Synopsis

Seitzer seeks to provide a more effective criticism of Schmitt than commentaries that focus on Schmitt's treatment of key works and concepts in legal and political theory. He elaborates a concrete form of normative theory, which uses comparative history to identify and test institutional changes that enhance the overall system's capacity for self-correction.
