Переписка о Шмитте и политическом
The political philosophy of Carl Schmitt is discussed in two letters. The first is written by a philosopher Anatoliy Akhutin. He formulates three questions: (1) On sovereignty. The sovereign, according to Schmitt, is who can introduce a state of exception. Is it now possible, however, that the state of exception will be used as a means to obtain and maintain personal dictatorship? (2) On decisiveness. What does it mean, this mutual echoing of Schmitt and Heidegger? Are we allowed to say that the plenitude of the existential autonomy is achieved in the monolith existence of the Volk? (3) On speech and democracy. Is it not more reasonable to understand the political as a community of those being-able-to-speak. This letter is addressed to Alexander F. Filippov, a sociologists, who tries to give an answer to these questions.
