    Description: ­ ­ At the end of the eighteenth century, people who became notorious for their excessive engagement in legal proceedings started being labeled as “querulents” or “paranoid litigants”. The term “querulents” first appeared in the () from July 6, 1793. From there on, the spectrum of juridical measures undertaken against the so‐labeled litigators included classifying these persons as ineligible for legal action and psychiatric hospitalization. The paper discusses to what extent Hermann Bahr rearranges psychiatric and legal knowledge about this special type of the complainer in his tragicomedy , premiered in 1914. This concerns, first, the theatricality of the body and speech, secondly, the use of cultural techniques of writing and, thirdly, conflicting notions of justice. Therefore, the paper analyzes the aesthetic function of querulous behavior in the dramatic structure of the play from the point of view of both media theory and literary theory.

    Description: At the end of the 18th century, reports were made of unusual and curious legal cases in which the plaintiffs were moved by a self-destructive obsession. These excessive desires expressed themselves in the fact that these people were involved in countless lawsuits and vied in vain for their rights in court. These plaintiffs were people who studied the law obsessively, meticulously filed suit after suit, and continuously troubled civil servants with unjustified legal demands. The Prussian bureaucracy gave these plaintiffs a name: ›Querulanten‹ (from Latin: queri, to complain). This paper deals with the history of these troublemakers, and more particularly, with the goal of understanding the source, development, and the continuing existence of querulency as a connection between media, knowledge, and emotions.

    Description: Abstract Der Beitrag untersucht das Verhältnis zwischen Kulturtechniken, Dingen und Medien des Rechts in Ingeborg Bachmanns Erzählung Ein Wildermuth (1961). Dabei stellt sich die Frage, inwiefern dem Streit-Ding in der Erzählung eine Akteursbeschaffenheit und dem Recht eine Vernetzungsleistung von Menschen, Akten und Texten zugeschrieben wird. Die Erzählung thematisiert ein epistemologisches Problem, das von einem Streit-Ding ausgehend in unterschiedlichen Varianten durchgespielt wird: Wie ist es möglich, einen Zugang zur (juristischen) Wahrheit zu erlangen, wenn es bereits außerordentlich schwierig ist, etwas über die Identität eines Knopfes auszusagen? Bachmann bezieht sich auf literarische Diskurse der sprachlichen Urteilskraft über Dinge (H. v. Hofmannsthal) und verbindet diese mit der Frage nach juristischen Wahrheitsformen. Dabei zeigt sich die Wahrheitssuche als eine Recherche in den Abgrenzungen eines pädagogischen, juristisch-bürokratischen und sexuellen Dispositivs....
