Giacomo Marramao - Against Power

Marramao Against Power


Against Power: For an Overhaul of Critical Theory

By (author) Giacomo Marramao  
Translated by Patrick Camiller

In this book Giacomo Marramao focuses on the work of two great Central European writers, Elias Canetti and Herta Muller, each of whom, in different periods and contexts, offered a philosophical genealogy of forms of domination and a radical diagnosis of power, command and law. This book explores the issue of power from a philosophical literary perspective. It tackles the linguistic and literary relations between the notions of "power" and "potency".
