Abstract

Is everything political? Is ‘the political’ the ground on which we establish laws and policies? Ever since Carl Schmitt’s The Concept of the Political (1922), these questions concerning ‘the political’ have dominated the debate in political philosophy. This dissertation begins with this debate by studying the totalising and unsustainable political metaphysics of Schmitt. By operating a displacement, the question of the possibility of an ‘outside’ in the political metaphysics of Carl Schmitt is transformed when reading the two French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault.
