The concept of the political by Carl Schmitt( Book )

97 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work, legal theorist and political philosopher Carl Schmitt argues that liberalism's basis in individual rights cannot provide a reasonable justification for sacrificing oneself for the state. George Schwab's introduction to his translation of the 1932 German edition highlights Schmitt's intellectual journey through the turbulent period of German history leading to the Hitlerian one-party state. In addition to analysis by Leo Strauss and a foreword by Tracy B. Strong placing Schmitt's work into contemporary context, this expanded edition also includes a translation of Schmitt's 1929 lecture "The Age of Neutralizations and Depoliticizations," which the author himself added to the 1932 edition of the book."--Jacket

The crisis of parliamentary democracy by Carl Schmitt( Book )

101 editions published between 1923 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described both as "the Hobbes of our age" and as "the philosophical godfather of Nazism," Carl Schmitt was a brilliant and controversial political theorist whose doctrine of political leadership and critique of liberal democratic ideals distinguish him as one of the most original contributors to modern political theory. The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy offers a powerful criticism of the inconsistencies of representative democracy. First published in 1923, it has often been viewed as an attempt to destroy parliamentarism; in fact, it was Schmitt's attempt to defend the Weimar constitution. The introduction to this new translation places the book in proper historical context and provides a useful guide to several aspects of Weimar political culture. The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy
Political romanticism by Carl Schmitt( Book )

102 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pioneer in legal and political theory, Schmitt traces the prehistory of political romanticism by examining its relationship to revolutionary and reactionary tendencies in modern European history. Both the partisans of the French Revolution and its most embittered enemies were numbered among the romantics. During the movement for German national unity at the beginning of the nineteenth century, both revolutionaries and reactionaries counted themselves as romantics. According to Schmitt, the use of the concept to designate opposed political positions results from the character of political romanticism: its unpredictable quality and lack of commitment to any substantive political position. The romantic person acts in such a way that his imagination can be affected. He acts insofar as he is moved. Thus an action is not a performance or something one does, but rather an affect or a mood, something one feels. The product of an action is not a result that can be evaluated according to moral standards, but rather an emotional experience that can be judged only in aesthetic and emotive terms. These observations lead Schmitt to a profound reflection on the shortcomings of liberal politics. Apart from the liberal rule of law and its institution of an autonomous private sphere, the romantic inner sanctum of purely personal experience could not exist. Without the security of the private realm, the romantic imagination would be subject to unpredictable incursions. Only in a bourgeois world can they individual become both absolutely sovereign and thoroughly privatized: a master builder in the cathedral of his personality. An adequate political order cannot be maintained on such a tolerant individualism, concludes Schmitt

On the three types of juristic thought by Carl Schmitt( Book )

51 editions published between 1934 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : " L'adhésion de Carl Schmitt au mouvement national-socialiste dès 1933 a jeté sur l'ensemble de son œuvre une ombre inquiétante , écrit Dominique Séglard en présentation de cet ouvrage. Dans ce texte issu de deux conférences prononcées en 1934 à l'occasion de l'anniversaire de la prise de pouvoir d'Hitler, Carl Schmitt mêle sa pensée économique aux bases de sa justification morale et juridique du nazisme. Il y met en concurrence trois types de pensée juridique : le normativisme, le décisionnisme et la pensée de l'ordre concret, dans laquelle l'État possède un pouvoir absolu, la seule conforme à l'essence du peuple allemand. Il conservera cette substance dans sa pensée toute sa vie, alors même que c'est cette vision trop éloignée de la Volksgemeinschaft qui lui vaudra les critiques et le désaveu des cadres du régime dès 1934. Plus qu'un document historique, ce texte est un élément essentiel à la compréhension de la pensée globale de Carl Schmitt."
Writings on war by Carl Schmitt( Book )

44 editions published between 1937 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writings on War collects three of Carl Schmitt's most important and controversial texts, here appearing in English for the first time: The Turn to the Discriminating Concept of War, The Groraum Order of International Law, and The International Crime of the War of Aggression and the Principle "Nullum crimen, nulla poena sine lege". Written between 1937 and 1945, these works articulate Schmitt's concerns throughout this period of war and crisis, addressing the major failings of the League of Nations, and presenting Schmitt's own conceptual history of these years of disaster for international jurisprudence. For Schmitt, the jurisprudence of Versailles and Nuremberg both fail to provide for a stable international system, insofar as they attempt to impose universal standards of "humanity" on a heterogeneous world, and treat efforts to revise the status quo as "criminal" acts of war. In place of these flawed systems, Schmitt argues for a new planetary order in which neither collective security organizations nor 19th century empires, but Schmittian "Reichs" will be the leading subject of international law. -- Publisher description

The Leviathan in the state theory of Thomas Hobbes : meaning and failure of a political symbol by Carl Schmitt( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing in 1938 under the pretext of studying the significance of the symbol of the leviathan in Hobbes' theory of state, Schmitt alludes to the demise of the Third Reich because of its rapid transformation into a totalitarian polity. As Schmitt recognizes, in this state, the Hobbesian protection-obedience axiom is being heavily tilted in favor of obedience at the expense of protection. When this occurs, Schmitt observes, "the soul of a people" betakes "itself on the 'secret road' that leads inward
Hamlet or Hecuba : the intrusion of the time into the play by Carl Schmitt( Book )

41 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though Carl Schmitt is best known for his legal and political theory, his 1956 Hamlet or Hecuba provides an innovative and insightful analysis of Shakespeare's tragedy in terms of the historical situation of its creation. Schmitt argues that the significance of Shakespeare's work hinges on its ability to integrate history in the form of the taboo of the queen and the deformation of the figure of the avenger. He uses this interpretation to develop a theory of myth and politics that serves as a cultural foundation for his concept of political representation. More than literary criticism or historical analysis, Schmitt's book lays out a comprehensive theory of the relationship between aesthetics and politics that responds to alternative ideas developed by Walter Benjamin and Theodor W. Adorno. Jennifer R. Rust and Julia Reinhard Lupton's introduction places Schmitt's work in the context of contemporary Renaissance studies, and David Pan's afterword analyzes the links to Schmitt's political theory. Presented in its entirety in an authorized translation, Hamlet or Hecuba is essential reading for scholars of Shakespeare and Schmitt alike."--Site web de l'éditeur
