What does Carl Schmitt have to offer to ongoing debates about sovereignty, globalization, spatiality, the nature of the political, and political theology? Can Schmitt’s positions and concepts offer insights that might help us understand our concrete present-day situation? Works on Schmitt usually limit themselves to historically isolating Schmitt into his Weimar or post-Weimar context, to reading him together with classics of political and legal philosophy, or to focusing exclusively on a particular aspect of Schmitt’s writings. Bringing together an international, and interdisciplinary, range of contributors, this book explores the question of Schmitt’s relevance for an understanding of the contemporary world. Engaging the background and intellectual context in which Schmitt wrote his major works – often with reference to both primary and secondary literature unavailable in English – this book will be of enormous interest to legal and political theorists.

Carl Schmitt war ein Mann des polemischen Traktats, der Streitschrift, des Pamphlets. Zu seiner eigentlichen literarischen Form fand er in dem, was die Franzosen einen brûlot nennen: ein entflammbarer Text, ein Boot mit hochentzündlicher Fracht, dazu bestimmt, das Schiff des Gegners in Brand zu setzen. Ein solcher brûlot ist die Schrift über die »Tyrannei der Werte«. Der Titel enthält bereits die ganze These. Werte können dem Gemeinwesen und seinem Recht keinen festen Grund bieten, sie verschärfen vielmehr dessen Probleme. Gerade wenn man von ihnen erwartet, sie sollen Gemeinsamkeit stiften, wirken sie zerstörerisch. [...] Der jungen Bundesrepublik, in der man sich nach der tiefen Verunsicherung durch Nationalsozialismus und Krieg gern und viel auf Werte berief, liest Carl Schmitt auf diese Weise die Leviten. So scheinbar klar seine zentrale These daherkommt, so rasch drängen sich dem Leser freilich grundsätzliche Fragen auf. Auf welcher Ebene bewegt sich Schmitts Argumentation eigentlich? Geht es um politische Philosophie, um allgemeine Ethik oder um Verfassungsrecht und Verfassungsgerichtsbarkeit? Schmitt selbst gibt einen Hinweis, wenn er »Überlegungen eines Juristen zur Wert-Philosophie« ankündigt. [...] Sein Text wählt von vornherein eine schwierige Zwischenlage zwischen Philosophie und Jurisprudenz. Der Autor will Philosophen und Juristen etwas sagen, geht damit freilich auch das Risiko ein, beide zu enttäuschen.Aus dem Nachwort von Christoph Schönberger

Written in the intense political and intellectual tumult of the early years of the Weimar Republic, Political Theology develops the distinctive theory of sovereignty that made Carl Schmitt one of the most significant and controversial political theorists of the twentieth century. Focusing on the relationships among political leadership, the norms of the legal order, and the state of political emergency, Schmitt argues in Political Theology that legal order ultimately rests upon the decisions of the sovereign. According to Schmitt, only the sovereign can meet the needs of an "exceptional" time and transcend legal order so that order can then be reestablished. Convinced that the state is governed by the ever-present possibility of conflict, Schmitt theorizes that the state exists only to maintain its integrity in order to ensure order and stability. Suggesting that all concepts of modern political thought are secularized theological concepts, Schmitt concludes Political Theology with a critique of liberalism and its attempt to depoliticize political thought by avoiding fundamental political decisions.

There is an inherent tension between popular and establishment powers in political communities. With anti-establishment sentiment on the rise across Western democracies, exploring the underpinnings of this dualism and rethinking theories of political life within states is of paramount importance. By combining the theories of Carl Schmitt and Benedict Spinoza, this book develops a framework of continuous reproduction, whereby the two powers simultaneously hold one another in tension and supersede one another. In the same vein, political communities are shown to be perpetually caught in a cycle of creativity/contestation, derived primarily from Schmitt (the tragic groundlessness of politics) and limitation (derived primarily from Spinoza as a quasi-theological belief in the status quo). Providing a novel theoretical framework explaining the workings of democratic politics, this book also offers a non-traditional reading of Spinoza and Schmitt. Whereas traditionally both have been treated as almost polar opposites, here they are held in creative tension, providing equally important building blocks for the proposed theory. By furthering their analysis, the author creates a new theory of political action.

More than twenty-five years after the collapse of the Socialist bloc, the nature of the regimes in Eastern Europe between 1945 and 1989 continues to evade the attempts of political theorists and scholars of post-communism to define and classify them. Drawing on philosophical inquiry, jurisprudential analysis and intellectual history, this book traces the impact of communist ideology and practice on legal thought: from its critical roots in the midst of the nineteenth century to its reactionary stand in the later years of the twentieth. Exploring how the communist experience – both in its revolutionary and authoritarian guises – has been articulated within the legal theoretical field, the book addresses two central theoretical lacunae fostered by the historiography of authoritarianism in Central and Eastern Europe: the status of law, and its relationship to the broader ideological framework legitimising authoritarian regimes. Moving beyond the limits of the contemporary discourse on communism – particularly as it is channelled through transitional justice and memory studies – Cosmin Cercel develops a theoretical framework that is able to uncover law’s complicity with the extreme ideologies that dominated Central and Eastern Europe. For it is, he argues, in its recourse to legal concepts that the communist experience raises important jurisprudential questions for our contemporary understanding of law, the limits of state sovereignty, and law’s relationship to historical violence.

Hayek, and Hans Morgenthau) in the United States after 1945. Visit our website for sample chapters!
