4 - State and sovereignty: Some reflections on Hermann Heller as interpreter of the Weimar crisis


The present essay addresses the way one of the leading intellectuals of the Weimar period – the legal theorist Hermann Heller – analysed and interpreted the roots and causes of the Weimar crisis and the weaknesses of that particular system. I will argue that such an analysis implied a critical legal and political reflection on the meaning of sovereignty, State and democracy.

Mots clés : Sovereignty, State, democracy, political representation, general will, Sara Lagi, Les Cahiers d’AGORA.
