In Svetozar Minkov & Piotr Nowak (eds.), Man and His Enemies: Essays on Carl Schmitt (2008)
The aim of the article is to outline and compare the way that Carl Schmitt and Hannah Arendt understand the spheree of politics as well as analyse the concepts of power and freedom connected with their theories. Both Schmitt and Arendt criticise liberal democracy for its “neutrality” and counterpoise it with their own understanding of political action. Especially Schmitt who understand such action as a conflict between friends and enemies. The analysis of their approach to the power and the contrasting their models of politics allows Wonicki to draw conclusions about contemporary liberalism and indicating its limits.
