Renner Revisited

Peter Robson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Karl Renner was a leading contributor to democratic-socialist legal theory within the Neo-Kantian 'Austro-Marxist' interpretation of socialism that developed in late nineteenth-century Vienna. For Renner and his associates, law is a fundamental and universal institution in any ordered human society. Given the universal necessity of law, the development of socialism may well proceed in an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary manner - and certainly, within the context of Viennese social democracy, it would proceed better by evolution
