The publication is still actual to its subtitle by way of emphasizing an array of either organic and sociocultural types of selection dynamics which are basic to explaining faith as a common establishment in human societies. as well as Darwinian choice, that could clarify the biology and neurology of faith, the ebook outlines a collection of 4 extra different types of sociocultural normal choice that could fill out the reason of why faith first emerged as an institutional method in human societies, and why it has endured to conform during the last 300,000 years of societal evolution. those sociocultural sorts of average choice are categorized by way of the names of the early sociologists who first emphasised them, and so they might be visible as an important complement to the kind of usual choice theorized through Charles Darwin. factors of faith that stay within the shadow solid by way of Darwin’s nice insights will, it's argued, stay slender and incomplete while explaining a strong sociocultural phenomenon like religion.?

Gegenstand des Bandes ist die Transformation und Neuformierung des Gesetzesbegriffs als Folge des Zusammentreffens von antiken und lokalen Rechtstraditionen mit den die neuen Kulturen formenden Offenbarungsreligionen Judentum, Christentum, Islam, die das geschriebene Gotteswort gleichfalls als Gesetz begreifen. Damit wird ein interdisziplinärer und interkultureller Blick auf die Rechtsdiskurse jenes Zeitraumes gelenkt, den wir aus abendländischer Sicht als Mittelalter bezeichnen. Bei dieser Begegnung entstehen zum Teil sehr unterschiedlich gelagerte Problemkonstellationen, wie Begründung, Anspruch und Verhältnis des göttlichen, menschlichen und natürlichen Gesetzes zu bestimmen sind. Bleibt das Gesetzesverständnis hinsichtlich seiner juristischen measurement vornehmlich auf den jeweiligen kulturellen und politischen Raum bezogen, so bilden der spekulative und der religiöse Gesetzesbegriff einen Referenzrahmen eigener paintings, dessen unterschiedliche, Theologie, Philosophie, Rechtslehre und Geschichte umspannende Fragestellungen im Zentrum des Bandes stehen. Hier liegen die Wurzeln für unser modernes Rechtsverständnis wie auch die Gründe für die aktuell zum Vorschein tretenden Differenzen zwischen den Kulturkreisen und Religionen.
