Abstract

The article offers the authors' insight on the linguistic vitalism of the work of Girgio Agamben. They note that Agamben is considered a vitalist thinker and refines Heideggerian thought to bring out its extreme consequences. They believe that the ontological politicisation of philosophy of Agamben aims to collapse the metaphysical form of law into the undetermined form of life. They add that the positive notion of political agency cannot be delineated by Agamben due to ontological premises.
