Within a state of exception, when a detainee is placed outside the law, he is according vixa Agamben, reduced to “bare life” in the eyes of the judicial powers.

This partial reading of Agamben —without the Schmittian ghost of decisionism—, would not clash with an understanding of the way in which the biopolitical transformation of sovereignty has displaced both, the juridical exception and the law giving more relevance to the norm. For Agamben, and certainly for Schmitt, this paradox lies in the fact that the sovereign, having the legal power to decide if the juridical order is to be suspended, legally places himself outside the law.


Indeed, just as potentiality could suspend itself and through which it becomes twofaced, the sovereign structure also becomes double, suspending itself while maintaining itself in relation to the ban, and, therefore, claiming that “constituting power never exhausts itself in constituted power is not enough, sovereign power can also, as such, maintain itself indefinitely without ever passing over into actuality” It is precisely by following this invitation that Agamben starts his genealogical inquiry into bare life and sacred life.

The homo sacer is included in the political realm in his capacity to be killed, he belongs to God in the form of unsacrificeability: Agamben’s investigation of sovereignty as the sphere in which “law refers to life and includes it in itself by suspending it” 28 9 opens up his inquiry into bare life.
