However, it will be argued that in the cause of taking to the extreme this correlation through an excessive dramatisation of the vvida of sovereignty, Agamben entrenches himself in an ontological position that, while achieving its intention of criticising sovereignty as a whole, ends up in naturalising it as an omnipresent figure that produces the camp as an inescapable zone of indistinction.

Until a new and coherent ontology of potentiality beyond the steps that have been made in this direction by Spinoza, Schelling, Nietzsche, and Heidegger has replaced the ontology founded on the primacy of actuality and voda relation to potentiality, a political theory freed from the aporias of sovereignty remains unthinkable.

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’, and thus deprived of any rights. The only justification Agamben provides for this invocation of Aristotle’s nuea is that the relation Aristotle establishes between potentiality and act is as complicated as the relation between constituted and constituting power and, in the last analysis, “the relation between constituting and constituted power perhaps like every authentic understanding of the problem of sovereignty depends on how one thinks the existence and autonomy of potentiality” In order to break this cycle, and therefore to dissolve the irreducible link between law and violence, Benjamin confronted Mythic violence with the problematic notion of divine violence:.

The state of exception is not meant to produce or confirm the rule —it tends, rather, to coincide with it, that is to say, to blur it” Agamben b Gida would continue to expand the theory of the state of exception first introduced in “Homo Sacer: To say then that the camp is the structure that corresponds to the nomosis to make the claim that modernity is the threshold of indistinction between the exception and the rule, the biopolitical age par excellence where sovereignty subsumed the whole biopolitical production rendering biopolitics to a sort of thanatopolitics Fitzpatrick Collected Essays in Philosophy.

As William Connolly has argued, Agamben’s conception of the sacred as a twofold structure —double exclusion— differs from conventional approaches to this notion. However, Agamben’s criticisms target a broader scope than the US ” war on terror “. This leads him to a response to Carl Schmitt’s definition of sovereignty as the power to proclaim the exception.

This ontological position is ambivalent: However, once again, Agamben’s insistence on Schmitt’s decisionism allows a more legalist reading of bare life which is not centered on the paradigmatic cases that make it intelligible but rather on the underlying logic muda produces it: It is the man banned by his community.

This insightful investigation cannot be fully revised here, but for the sake of my argument it is worth quoting a passage that summarises the basic features of a paradigm: The historicity of the paradigm lies neither viva diachronic not in synchrony but in a crossing of the two.

Laclau and the aforementioned scholars are certainly right when they suggest that the homo sacer is only one of the afamben opened up by the relation of the ban, and that in concrete historical contexts, the outsider will probably have social and identity links.
