  3. State of Exception.Kevin Attell (ed.) - 2004 - University of Chicago Press.
    Two months after the attacks of 9/11, the Bush administration, in the midst of what it perceived to be a state of emergency, authorized the indefinite detention of noncitizens suspected of terrorist activities and their subsequent trials by a military commission. Here, distinguished Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben uses such circumstances to argue that this unusual extension of power, or "state of exception," has historically been an underexamined and powerful strategy that has the potential to transform democracies into totalitarian states.

What is man? How did he come on the scene? And how has he maintained his privileged place as the master of, or first among, the animals?

    The Signature of All Things: On Method.Luca D'Isanto & Kevin Attell (eds.) - 2009 - Zone Books.
    The Signature of All Things is Giorgio Agamben's sustained reflection on method. To reflect on method implies for Agamben an archaeological vigilance: a persistent form of thinking in order to expose, examine, and elaborate what is obscure, unanalyzed, even unsaid, in an author's thought.
