PEREYRA TISSERA, Guillermo Damián. The Problem of Law and Violence in Derrida and Agamben. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2011, vol.56, n.212, pp.31-54. ISSN 0185-1918.

In this article, the author analyzes the manner in which Jacques Derrida and Giorgio Agamben understand the connection between law and violence and explores the reasons of the disagreements that each focus maintains -de-construction and bio politics respectively- in the understanding of the concepts previously mentioned. Not ignoring the differences, he proposes also, that the disagreement between de-construction and bio politics does not prevent finding points of contact between the two authors that approach the problem of justice from a post-fundamentalist perspective. Finally, he concludes that de-construction and bio politics are confronted but not in terms of a pure opposition or categorical.

Keywords : Jacques Derrida; Giorgio Agamben de-construction; biopolitics; law; violence; justice.
