Giorgio Agamben, "Ce qui reste d'Auschwitz: L'archive et le témoin"
2016 | ISBN: 2743637587 | Français | EPUB | 192 pages | 0.2 MB

La recherche ici entreprise dans le village de Homo sacer ne porte pas sur les circonstances historiques dans lesquelles s'est accomplie la destruction des juif d'Europe mais sur la structure et la signification du témoignage.

Cities, scripts, literature, the rule of law – all were born in Iraq. That so many see this ancient land as nothing more than a violent backwater steeped in chaos is a travesty. This is the place where, for the first 5,000 years of human history, all innovations of worth emerged. It was the cradle of civilization.
