  1. It’s really a sad news…I met Prof Brugger in Taipei on March 2006. He was a nice, charming personality. It is not well-known that he developped close ties with Asian scholars. He hosted my senpai, Prof Kenji Ishikawa, then professor at Tokyo Metropolitan University Faculty of Law, in Heidelberg. Under his suprevision, a Taiwanese sscholar published his dissertation (in German) about Michel Foucault. Will miss him.
