Abstract

In different genres of literature (fictional and nonfictional texts) and in some topics of philosophy practical and ethic rules or also rules of behaviour play an important role. These rules are either the background of a plot, didactic instruction or a topic that is discussed philosophically. This session shall introduce examples of those texts and shaw in this way that the discussion about rule is of high relevance in different areas of everyday life, especially in literature and in cultural life in general.
