Resumen

CAMARGO, Ricardo. For a critique of a (divine) violence: notes on a political (re)inscription. Polis [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.42, pp.305-323. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682015000300014.

Following the analaysis to which Walter Benjamin invites us in his text “For a critique of Violence”, this article presents a set of notes on an always ticklish and difficult question to explore, as is that of violence, even more on a time when the original inscription of violence seems to be hidden across its resounding criminalized exhibition in the media, which shows it in an immeasurable distance to justice and law. Where there is law, it is said to us, violence ceases to exist. And it makes, therefore, very anti-intuitive to think about it (violence), in an incestuous relation with law, less still to conceive it, in current times, in a political sense and not merely as a criminal issue, on the margins of the law, as I will try to explore here. For this, the formulated readings of Benjamin’s text by Carl Schmitt, Giorgio Agamben and Slavoj Žižek will allow me to restate a question today excluded, as is: in what specific sense can violence be considered to be a political issue? The answer will suggest the affirmation of a positive biopolitics that goes beyond Foucault.

Palabras clave : Divine Violence; Benjamin; Agamben; Žižek.
