Italian Giorgio Agamben is one of the most influential contemporary philosophers, whose extensive work addresses, among other subjects, the challenge of political action in modern times. One of his most famous books is State of Exception, in which the author observes situations where what is unlikely to become legal, suddenly does. He reaches the conclusion that the State of Exception is a new form of action in modern states.
Giorgio was responsible for the Italian edition of the complete works of Walter Benjamin. He was a former student of Heidegger and author, together with Gilles Deleuze, of works on literary theory and philosophy. His contribution to political thinking has turned out to be very significant, mainly in the area of biopolitical reflection.
