Giorgio Agamben has gained widespread popularity in recent years for his rethinking of radical politics and his approach to meta-physics and language. However, the extraordinary breadth of historical, legal, and philosophical sources that contribute to the complexity and depth of Agamben's thinking can also make his work intimidating. Catherine Mill's critical introduction covers the full range of Agamben's work, presenting his key concerns - metaphysics, language and potentiality, aesthetics and poetics, sovereignty, law and biopolitics, ethics and testimony - as well as his powerful vision of post-historical humanity. Highlighting the novelty of Agamben's approach while situating it in relation to the work of other continental thinkers, The Philosophy of Agamben presents a clear and engaging introduction to the work of an innovative and influential thinker.
