Brocker I 826
Biopolitics/Agamben: Power analyses that make use of the concept of "biopolitics" focus on the concept of life - and not on the citizen, the subject, the subserviant - and thus focus on the growing current "politicization of life".
Brocker I 827
Agamben now combines Foucault's shifts to biopolitics (1) with Hannah Arendt's shifts to the concept of life. (2)
AgambenVsFoucault: he has failed to shift his field of activity to the policies of the great totalitarian states of the 20th century. (3)
AgambenVsArendt: their analysis of totalitarian states lacks the aspect of biopolitics.
Solution/Agamben: Agamben brings the two strands together in the terms "naked" and "holy" life. See Holiness/Agamben, Terminology/Agamben, Life/Agamben, Humans/Agamben.
