The right of resistance against state power played a central role in the genesis and justification of the late eighteenth century constitutional state. The German philosophical tradition, however, had great difficulty to accept this, while the liberal and social revolutionary movements of the nineteenth century led to new constellations in the dispute. In the first half of the twentieth century, the right of resistance was claimed both by the propagandists of totalitarian movements and those who fought against them. Today, other forms of civil disobedience and illegal protest raise new questions of justification. The volume provides a discussion of the theoretical debate and its role in history with contributions from the perspective of philosophy, history, political science, and law.
