Giorgio Agamben: Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life [2006 // 174 p. // translation: Mario Kopic]

Since its publication in Italian in 1995, Homo sacer has been translated into a multiple languages, and Agamben’s provocative and far-reaching theses have become the subject of frequent debate, greatly exceeding the domain of mere academic discussion. Continuing the works of Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt and Michel Foucault, in his book Agamben sets out a completely independent and radical diagnosis of modern democratic societies.
