This volume constitutes the largest collection of writings by the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben hitherto published in any language. The essays consider several figures in the history of philosophy; the relation of linguistic and metaphysical categories; messianism in Islamic, Jewish, and Christian theology; and the state and future of contemporary politics.This volume is indicative of Agamben s broad range of interests. . . . Despite this range of interests, however, a sustained commitment to certain theoretical issues particularly language and history lends the volume a coherence. . .
