Despite its status as an instalment of a much larger project, this book stands alone as a contribution to the history of political thought and practice and its present relevance. It’s an open question for me – and, in some sense, the rest of Agamben’s Homo Sacer series – but kingcom a question that bristles with the promise of intellectual adventure.

What is the relation between economy and Glory?

The Kingdom and the Glory: For a Theological Genealogy of Economy and Government

In sostanza, il potere non agisce mai direttamente, ma sempre attraverso sottoposti che partecipano all’ordine di cui fanno parte.

This generates a second paradox: A renewed analytics of power and pol- itics of resistance should be possible, however, without recourse to a project seeking to deactivate all profane powers including those of public bureaucracies. T marked it as to-read. In Capital, Xgamben Marx rails against the dark Trinity of land, labor and capital as a secular displacement of its theological source.

Philosophically, this line of the book’s argument is convincing, especially given the level of detail Agamben devotes to his textual genealogies.

This is done by a bold move into a discussion of the early Iingdom patristic literature on the nature of the Holy Trinity as an oikonomia, an economy.

Gerald Moore – – Derrida Today 5 2: Agamben, speziell dieses Buch, wird wohl nur wenige motivieren es zu lesen, was vor allem an seiner kryptischen und tiefgehenden Art der Untersuchung liegt. But the center of the machine is empty, and glory is nothing but the splendor that emanates from this emptiness, the inexhaustible kabhod that at once reveals and veils the central vacuity of the machine.

Central to the book’s narrative then, is that the Christian doctrine of the trinity, in which God is at once unified and triune, and whose relations are organized by a divine oikonomia, is – in its formal functioning at least – at the core of today’s apparatuses of modern government – including, perhaps especially so, democratic government.

However, from mytho- logical, historical and anthropological points of view, these images underline the necessity, not displacement, of the position of the sovereign in political thought and practice. With this book, the work begun with Homo Sacer reaches a decisive point, profoundly challenging and renewing our vision of politics.

Now, as a thousand readers of the book have pointed about, Agamben’s ‘method’ here is somewhat suspect.

Recommended by Davide “We need a new political model which means we need a new economy”. Monastic Rules and Form-of-Life Meridian: Da qui la distinzione tra Regno e Governo: However, with the formation of the dogma of the Trinity, Peterson argues, monotheism ceases to be a political problem and the idea of political agmben is completely demolished.

Why has power in the West assumed the form of an “economy,” that is, of a government of men and things? Lists with This Book.
