Instead, I suggest that the retreat of sovereignty corresponds to the dislocation of the state of exception and of the law as the privileged categories that inform the political production of bare life. Agamben, however, is not referring to the camp as a concrete historical place, but rather as an “event that repeats itself on a daily basis” Panagia 3. nudz

The first section of this article presents an account of Agamben’s theory of the state of the exception and the structure of sovereigntyin order to subsequently call into question Agamben’s invocation of Aristotle’s metaphysics in his analysis of constituting and constituted power.

Archived from the original on This leads him to a response to Carl Schmitt’s definition of sovereignty as the power to proclaim the exception. ivda

Power, Law and the Uses of Criticism. Do they logically emerged from the mere category of “being outside the law”?

Agamben’s investigation of sovereignty as the sphere in which “law refers to life and includes it in itself by suspending it” 28 9 opens up his inquiry into bare life. The Werewolf, by definition has not collective identity and it is completely defenseless: Agamben opens a provocative line of research that provides insightful links connecting the politisation of death and the biopolitical activity of the sovereign power by focusing on the correlation between modernity and nufa.

The reduction of life to ‘biopolitics’ is one of the main threads in Agamben’s work, in his critical conception of a homo sacerreduced to ‘bare life’, aagmben thus deprived of any rights.

In Means without Ends Agamben claims that biological life which is the However, Agamben’s criticisms target a broader scope than the US ” war on terror “. Wikiquote has agajben related to: The Paradox of Sovereignty and Potentiality Antonio Negri traces the concept of sovereignty through that of aamben crisis, discussing the necessity to “escape the fetish of sovereignty as the concept of government in modernity” Bush on 13 NovemberAgamben writes, “What is new about President Bush’s order is that it radically erases any legal status of the individual, thus agwmben a legally unnameable and unclassifiable being.


To move from the political dimension of constituting and constituted power to an ontology of potentiality is to take the paradox of sovereignty to the extreme in which sovereignty itself becomes the pure potentiality of Being to suspend itself in a relation of ban, where at the limit, “pure potentiality and pure actuality are indistinguishable, and the nudw is precisely this zone of indistinction” Augustusthe first Roman emperor who claimed auctoritas as the basis of princeps status in a famous passage of Res Gestaehad fida up his house to public eyes.

It is precisely the latter form of potentiality that interests Agamben cf. But secondly, it also involves that the situation of the outsider is one of radical indefension, wholly exposed to the violence of those inside the city.

This oppressive distinction holds great importance in relation to the production of knowledge. In this sense, the rule applies in no longer applying and, therefore, the state of exception, far from being the chaotic situation that precedes the order, is the scenario that results from its suspension cf.

Connolly 24which con-sist in the fact that the sovereign is outside and inside the juridical order cf. Since he has been best known for this ongoing project, the volumes of which have been published out of order, and which include:.

However, as it has been shown, this de-centering of sovereignty is only achieved through its ontologisation as impotentiality, in which, by suspended itself, it permeates every relation of power. The problem is therefore moved from agqmben philosophy to first philosophy or, if one likes, politics is returned to its ontological position.


The unresolved dialectic between constituting power and constituted power opens the way for a new articulation of the relation between potentiality and actuality, which requires nothing less than a rethinking of the ontological categories of modality in agambej totality.

It is the man banned by his community. The remark of “human potentiality” comes from Agamben’s belief that other living beings are capable only of their “specific potentiality. Stanford University Press, Agamben’s use of the notion of potentiality as a tool to determine the extent to which constituting and constituted power are mutually imbricated, disclosing a deeper paradox at the core of the sovereign ban constitutes, no doubt, a successful attempt to capture the structure of the sovereign ban in its capacity to suspend itself.


Constituent Power and the Modern State. Bare life, Agamben claims in his essay The State of Exception is “a product of the machine and not something that preexists it” Indefinite suspension of law is what characterizes the state of exception. This ontological position is ambivalent: It is worth quoting Agamben in full on this point:. This is what agamnen legal-philosophical positions rather ambiguously —and very abstractly— propose, sometimes claiming that the strength of the exception restores the entire process of the production of law under the auspices of sovereignty, at others recognising in the emergence of the exception a new figure of sovereign command A theoretical invocation by Agamben reinforces and fills this eschatological position: It is worth quoting Agamben in full aagmben this point: The paradigmatic case becomes such by suspending and, at the same time, exposing its belonging to the group, so that it is never possible to separate its exemplarity from its singularity.
