Abstract

Inspired by an unsuccessful controversy in this yearbook about the different responsibilities of the state for its own competitive economic order and about interstate systems competition, the article is tackling the getting out of hand use of the notion of competition in current political discussions. It tries to develop a taxonomy of all the different kinds of competition under the general heading of a ranking procedure. That is quite plausible for the different kinds of competition in sports, politics and societal communities. They aim all at a ranking of the participating competitors. How that works also in the frame of economic competition is shown under the text book price competition model. The great variety of reputation competition in scientific communities, system competition and politics is in detail discussed under the different institutional preconditions. The intention of the essay is to open an analytical perspective for the general idea of a spontaneous competitive interaction in a free society.
