In this his most influential 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 This edition of the work includes the translator s introduction by George Schwab which highlights Schmitt s intellectual journey through the turbulent period of German history leading to the Hitlerian one party state It also includes Leo Strauss s analysis of Schmitt s thesis and a foreword by Tracy B Strong placing Schmitt s work into contemporary context, Written in the intense political and intellectual tumult of the early years of the Weimar Republic i Political Theology i develops the distinctive theory of sovereignty that made Carl Schmitt one of the most significant and controversial political theorists of the twentieth century br br Focusing on the relationships among political leadership the norms of the legal order and the state of political emergency Schmitt argues in i Political Theology i that legal order ultimately rests upon the decisions of the sovereign According to Schmitt only the sovereign can meet the needs of an exceptional time and transcend legal order so that order can then be reestablished Convinced that the state is governed by the ever present possibility of conflict Schmitt theorizes that the state exists only to maintain its integrity in order to ensure order and stability Suggesting that all concepts of modern political thought are secularized theological concepts Schmitt concludes i Political Theology i with a critique of liberalism and its attempt to depoliticize political thought by avoiding fundamental political decisions, No description available, Carl Schmitt ranks among the most original and controversial political thinkers of the twentieth century His incisive criticisms of Enlightenment political thought and liberal political practice remain as shocking and significant today as when they first appeared in Weimar Germany Unavailable in English until now i Legality and Legitimacy i was composed in in the midst of the crisis that would lead to the collapse of the Weimar Republic and only a matter of months before Schmitt s collaboration with the Nazis In this important work Schmitt questions the political viability of liberal constitutionalism parliamentary government and the rule of law Liberal governments he argues cannot respond effectively to challenges by radical groups like the Nazis or Communists Only a presidential regime subject to few if any practical limitations can ensure domestic security in a highly pluralistic society i Legality and Legitimacy i is sure to provide a compelling reference point in contemporary debates over the challenges facing constitutional democracies today In addition to Jeffrey Seitzer s translation of the text itself this volume contains his translation of Schmitt s commentary on the work extensive explanatory notes and an appendix including selected articles of the Weimar constitution John P McCormick s introduction places i Legality and Legitimacy i in its historical context clarifies some of the intricacies of the argument and ultimately contests Schmitt s claims regarding the inherent weakness of parliamentarism constitutionalism and the rule of law
