Means without End: Notes on Politics

Giorgio Agamben


In this critical rethinking of the categories of politics within a new sociopolitical and historical context, Giorgio Agamben builds on his previous work to address the status and nature of politics itself. Bringing politics face-to-face with its own failures of consciousness and consequence, Agamben frames his analysis in terms of clear contemporary relevance. He proposes, in his characteristically allusive and intriguing way, a politics of gesture - a politics of means without end.
