Negri on Agamben’s Opus Dei

Via @Potentia_Space, a review of Agamben’s recent work Opus Dei by Negri has been translated into English, characterizing this book as the “end” of Agamben’s Homo Sacer series and the series as a whole as an attempt to complete Heidegger’s archeology of Being.

    Just FYI: I don’t think Negri’s characterization of The Highest Poverty is fair — in reality, it seems much closer to the direction Negri wants to take than Negri admits.

  2. Rex Says:

    I have only read one Nigri and a couple Agamben, so my reaction to the Nigri review of Opus Dei (thank you for alerting us to it) is thereby limited. Is the association that Nigri makes between Agamben and Carl Schmitt justified in your opinion?

  3. Adam Kotsko Says:

    Yes, it’s obviously justified.

  4. Adam Kotsko Says:

    Not obvious in the sense that you should’ve known, but obvious in the sense that no one who knows Agamben’s work would dispute it.

    Any idea if/when this will be in translation?

  6. Adam Kotsko Says:

    I am translating it and anticipate submitting my draft by the end of October.
