interpretation of Walter’s act of double “relief ” fails to appreciate one very important point: Walter is not a judge who hands down sentences and imposes punishments by applying laws or legal rules.

It is because of Walter’s function, to observe law within law, and not from the application of a legal rule, that the double act of “relief ” ensues. For an indication of how Walter’s double act of relieving Adam should be understood in this sense, we may look to Eve’s central scene. At

Reflections on Menke’s ‘Law and violence’
Alessandro Ferrara

without yet again reducing it to itself? –​Menke replies that, drawing on the character of Eve within Kleist’s The Broken Jug, a right to remain silent in court, or not to disclose significant elements of the life-​world in which one is immersed, can be construed as a “right against the law,” secured through law itself.

that war was on, he did so reluctantly, and humanitarian reasons loomed large in his thinking and were no sham. 30 Secondly, big business was against intervention until the eve of the war. This has been ‘conclusively demonstrated’ 31 by historian Julius Pratt (in the 1930s), who refers to the attitude of chief industrialists and bankers and the articles in leading financial journals, such as Journal of Commerce , American Banker and the Wall Street Journal , and, to

When Ascham engaged in the writing of the Discourse , on the eve of the Second Civil War, a final agreement between Charles I and Parliament still seemed distant. 14 The country was troubled by a political uncertainty provoked both by Charles I’s personal unfitness to rule and by the lack of a settlement with the army and the Commons, which would resolve the

The State Department, which had no choice but to agree, distanced itself from the decision to supply Israel with arms. On the eve of the Six Day War, Israel was still considered a liability, its official situation still vague and unacceptable to the US government. The gap between Israel and the United States regarding each

dithered, France resolved to send twenty-four Mystère IV planes to Israel without Washington’s knowledge. 46 Britain was more aware of Israel’s strategic weakness and of the existential dangers it faced, 47 but did not yet regard Israel as an ally on the same plane that France did, whose prime minister, Guy Mollet, compared Nasser to Hitler on the eve of World War II. The United States was leading to the

Iraq’s possession of WMD was the central Australian Government rationale for the invasion. As John Howard said on the eve of war, “I would have to accept that if Iraq had genuinely disarmed, I couldn’t justify on its own a military invasion of Iraq to change

Notwithstanding his public statements from April to September 2002, the claims made in the September 2002 dossier, his threat presentation on the eve of war, and his explanation of the war’s origins as lying in intelligence to the Hutton inquiry, Blair was subsequently obliged to shift his ground. Unlike the Hutton inquiry, the Butler inquiry had access to intelligence material. Counter to the impression given
