Collected Essays in Philosophy. Most importantly, however, according to Agamben, for the Greeks this distinction does not assign a sense of sacredness to life itself. In PotentialitiesAgamben clearly connects the idea of potentiality juda a particular conception of ontology.

However, Agamben’s criticisms target a broader scope than the US ” war on terror “. Wikiquote has quotations related to: It is important to note his understanding of “whatever” not as being indifference but based on the Latin “quodlibet ens” [31] translated as “being such that it always matters”.

Agamben begins by asserting that the Greeks “did not even possess a term to express the complex semantic sphere that we indicate with the single term life” 66instead they used two different terms to refer to life: Indeed, in this essay, Agamben claims that every human power is im-potentiality and, paradoxically, “every human potentiality is always-already held in relation to its own privation” Agamben Central to the double exclusion of the sacred is Agamben’s invocation of the ban as the original political relation.

A double movement is therefore necessary: Indeed, following Schmitt, Agamben claims that sovereign power is undoubtedly situated within and above the law cf.


Sovereign law makes it possible to create entire areas in which the application of the law itself is held suspended, which is the basis of the Bush administration ‘s definition of an ” enemy combatant”.

Whatever singularity, which wants to appropriate belonging itself, its own being-in-language, and thus rejects all identity and every condition buda belonging, is the principal enemy of the State. Antonio Negri traces the concept of sovereignty through that of a crisis, discussing the necessity to “escape the fetish of sovereignty as the concept of government in modernity” Sovereignty, then, is vids from ancient times as the power which determines what or who is to be incorporated into the political body in accord with its bios by means of the more originary exclusion or exception of what is to remain outside the political body—which is at the same time the source of that body’s ayamben zoe.

To move from the political dimension of constituting and constituted power to an ontology of potentiality is nudaa 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 sovereign is precisely this zone of indistinction” The homo sacer is included in the political realm in his capacity to be killed, he belongs nuad God in the form of unsacrificeability: Although Agamben recognizes the ambiguity of divine violence, he claims nonetheless that its definition becomes clearer when it is analyzed through the state of exception cf.

A genealogy of Agamben’s critique of sovereignty”. Continental philosophy Philosophy of life [1]. Agamben’s use of the notion of potentiality as a tool to determine the extent cida 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. Therefore, the question that remains open is that of the relation between impotentiality and practice, which could be translated as a political question concerning the ability of the sovereign cida to capture life by suspending itself without passing into actuality.


Giorgio Agamben

It is worth quoting Agamben in full on this point: And secondly, to construct another figure as a new paradigm of bare life i. The empire of rule, understood as the canon of scientificity, is thus replaced by that of the paradigm; the universal logic of the law is replaced by the specific and singular logic of the example” Agamben viva Central to the double exclusion of the sacred is Agamben’s invocation of the ban as the original political relation.

Instead of leaving a space between law and life, agaben space where human action is possible, the space that used to constitute politics, he argues that nusa has “contaminated itself with law” in the state of exception.

During this period, Agamben began to elaborate his primary concerns, although their political bearings were not yet made explicit. In this book, Giorgio Agamben traces the concept of ‘ state of exception ‘ Ausnahmezustand used by Carl Schmitt to Roman justitium and auctoritas. In a realized state of exception, one who has been accused of committing a crime, within the legal system, loses the ability to use his voice and represent themselves. Cambridge University Press, A paradigm is a form of knowledge that is neither inductive nor deductive but analogical.

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.

In short, Agamben’s bare life is never presupposed by the paradigms he uses to make it intelligible.
