Leland de la Durantaye, Giorgio Agamben: A Critical Introduction. Stanford: Stanford University Press, 2009.

Pierre-Yves Fioraso


The book presents itself as an introduction to Agamben, but this should not be taken to mean a shortcut or condensed summary of Agamben’s thought, which would in fact contour his work rather than encounter it. Instead, de la Durantaye provides us with an introduction in its proper sense, opening us up to a body of work that does not presuppose any knowledge of Agamben’s thought, yet has the scale and richness of detail that can appeal to those who already have a strong understanding of his work.
