Föderalismus und Souveränität im Bundesstaat: Ideengeschichtliche Grundlagen und die Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts

Steven Schäller präsentiert eine umfassende Studie zum challenge der Bundesstaatlichkeit unter dem Grundgesetz. Zunächst werden die beiden Begriffe ‚Föderalismus‘ und ‚Bundesstaat‘ als ideengeschichtlich weit zurückreichende und theoretisch-systematisch verankerte Topoi grundlegend aufgearbeitet. Daran schließt sich eine examine der Rechtsprechungspraxis des Bundesverfassungsgerichts an.

Example text

Note how the final state of the profit x, over time t, of a small firm represented by a linear model is independent of the initial state. A feature of linear systems is that different starting points lead to the same "end" points and do not make the system unstable. They are relatively easy to understand. Now observe how the final state, or direction of response, of the profit y over time t of the firm represented by a nonlinear model is dependent on the initial state. A feature of nonlinear representations is that different starting points will lead to different "end" points and can cause the model to become unstable.

State vector 3. State trajectory 4. 7. By considering a situation of interest to yourself, explain the meaning of homeostasis. 8. Explain why "structure," "process," and "systems behavior" are the three basic concepts associated with dynamic systems. 9. What effect can a "system's environment" have on a "system's behavior"? How is "environmental change" catered for in a stable system? 10. Is "counterintuitive behavior" a property of phenomena? 11. Draw a "black box" with feedback from the output to the input.

6. The method strongly suggests that the way we deal with different ranges and dimensions of complexity is an important matter for concern. In this book we will cover many different types of models, methodology, and theory, each developed to deal with some aspect of complexity. The clarity that will emerge helps to sort out the kind of problem Birkhoff struggled with. 7. 7. Disassembly of complexity III. 4, as befits the very nature of complexity. The arguments and ideas presented are a first pass through this difficult area.
