Roberto Esposito: Law, Community and the Politicalprovides an introduction to this increasingly influential Italian theorist's reconceptualisation of the relationship between law and community. Focusing primarily on Esposito's works Catégories de l'Impolitique, Communitas and Bíos, and Biopolitics and Philosophy, his work, it is argued, is animated by an abiding concern with the question of the political as that which remains unthought in the tradition of modern and contemporary political philosophy. Esposito's fundamental rethinking of the notion of community thereby breaks with the existing framework of political and legal philosophy; critiquing its traditions and, in the process, rethinking the very form of critique. Roberto Esposito: Law, Community and the Political the first monograph length study of Esposito in English, will be of considerable interest to those with interests in contemporary legal, political and philosophical thought.
