Under this second law, the government can pass civil defence orders to handle emergencies. Agamben’s thoughts on the state of emergency leads him to declare that the difference between dictatorship and democracy is thin indeed, as rule by decree became more and more common, starting from World War I and the reorganization of constitutional balance.

This paper calls the depicted narrative into question. Aristotle, as Agamben notes, constitutes political life via a simultaneous inclusion and exclusion of “bare life”: Agamhen this second step, I will illustrate my proposal through an example, which focuses on a specific constitutional discourse of ausnahmezustznd Weimar Republic:.

A Journal for the History of Philosophy 16 1: Whereas Schmitt sees the aamben of exception as a temporary split between political actions on the one side and the legal frame for such actions on the other side, Agamben understands the state ausnxhmezustand exception as an emanation of the original split within the law being law and violence at the same time.

Suhrkamp,f. The Long Shadow of Emergency Measures. The concept of biopolitics borrowed and adapted from Michel Foucault informs many of his writings.

In doing so, it connects the abstract level of Begriffsgeschichte with the history of the actual implementation of emergency measures. In order to sketch out the potential of this concept, we would need ‘a theory of use — of which Western philosophy lacks even the most elementary principles’. Yet, both in France and Israel, courts have increasingly become involved in ensuring the protection of fundamental freedoms and the separation of powers under states of emergencies, two intrinsic components of democracies.

My research work is based on the idea that the concept of the state of exception cannot convincingly explain the situation in the camps since it does not consider the coexistence of a legal regulation and a de facto lawlessness. Suhrkamp,ff. Agamben points out a general tendency of modernity, recalling for example that when Francis Galton and Alphonse Bertillon invented “judicial photography” for ” anthropometric identification”, the procedure was reserved to criminals; to the contrary, today’s society is tending toward a generalization of this procedure to all citizens, placing the population under permanent suspicion and surveillance: Besides these ad hoc interventions, the Constitution provides for the instrument of the law decree that the government can enact in situations of extreme necessity and urgency no further specification on the meaning of the two words is given.

Political freedom, in a constitutional democracy, is premised on legal equality: It may be all too simple, but certainly not all wrong to say that Kantians turn the Aristotelian concept around by arguing that justice is the precondition for citizenship and not citizenship for justice — a citizenship that needs to be defined ultimately in cosmopolitan terms in order to get rid of the exclusion problem.

In a fine summary of his argument he writes: What matters to Schmitt is the decision- maker ; keep in mind that it is the sovereign who decides about the state of exception, 13 x Schmitt, Politische Theologie In the Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy Carl Schmitt stated that dictatorship and democracy are not antitheses.

State of exception

How did the revolutionary and counter-revolutionary forces — both operating officially in the name of freedom and democracy — publicly justify and communicate their actions that clearly violated the existing legal order?
