John Lechte, Saul Newman - Agamben and the Politics of Human Rights: Statelessness, Images, Violence
2013 | ISBN: 0748645721 | English | 216 pages | PDF | 13.5 MB

Human rights are in crisis today. Everywhere we look, there is violence, deprivation and oppression, which human rights norms seem powerless to prevent. John Lechte and Saul Newman investigate the roots of the current crisis through the thought of Italian philosopher, Giorgio Agamben. Human rights theory and practice must come to grips with key problems identified by Agamben - the violence of the sovereign state of exception and the reduction of humanity to 'bare' life. Any renewal of human rights today must involve breaking decisively with the traditional coordinates of Western political thought and instead affirm a new understanding of life and political action.
