This article examines the scope of Agamben’s thesis that the camp is the
“nomos” of the world we live in. The author asserts that Agamben’s argument
in favour of consequentiality includes a call to radical revolutionary change
of the world, but that Agamben is unable to utter the call since he has no clear
notion of politics freed from law. Kurelić’s expos is divided into three segments.
In the first one, he focuses on Agamben’s disappointment with the corrupt
“Free West”, especially with the problems that the winners in the Cold
War are faced with. In Giorgio Agamben’s view, an example of a failed state
is his native Italy. In the second segment, the author deals with the “global
camp” conception and sets forth the narration in which the contemporary liberal
democracy has become one of the incarnations of Leviathan. In the final
segment, Kurelić draws a comparison between Agamben and Hannah Arendt,
and points out the problems which result from Agamben’s understanding of
state and politics. The author asserts that Agamben’s understanding of politics
can offer no advice regarding political action.
