9780415683494: The Legal Theory of Carl Schmitt

The Legal Theory of Carl Schmitt provides a detailed analysis of Schmitt’s institutional theory of law, mainly developed in the books published between the end of the 1920s and the beginning of the 1930s. By reading Schmitt’s overall work through the lens of his institutional turn, the authors offer a strikingly different interpretation of Schmitt’s theory of politics, law and the relation between these two domains. The book argues that Schmitt’s adhesion to legal institutionalism was a key theoretical achievement, based on serious reconsideration of the main flaws of his own decisionist paradigm, in the light of the French and Italian institutional theories of law. In so doing, the authors elucidate how Schmitt was able to unravel many of the impasses that affected his previous conceptual framework. The authors also make comparisons between Schmitt and other leading legal theorists (H. Kelsen, M. Hauriou, S. Romano and C. Mortati) and explain why the current legal debate should take into serious account his legacy.

Review:

Carl Schmitt is the most influential but for political reasons also most controversial German political theorist of the twentieth century. His influence reaches far beyond national borders and the field of jurisprudence. The literature on his work is endless. By now the political implications, all the way to the political theology, as well as the historical and biographical context have come under increasing attention. Thus, this book is a healthy provocation, since the authors understand Schmitt primarily as a theoretician of law. The core of his theory – contrary to the usual reduction on "decisionism" – is seen in his institutionalism and his concept of the concrete order. The attempt to view Schmitt’s entire work ‘through the lens of his institutional theory’ is a novelty. The authors move it – this is an unconventional view – into the proximity of H.L.A. Hart’s concept of legal standards.

Hasso Hofmann, Emeritus Professor of Constitutional Law and Legal Philosophy, Humboldt-Universität, Berlin

Carl Schmitt was many things over the course of his long life: political theorist, theologian, intellectual historian, international lawyer, polemicist, opportunist, villain, antisemite, Roman Catholic, Nazi. However, first and foremost, Schmitt was a constitutional jurist. With The Legal Theory of Carl Schmitt, Mariano Croce and Andrea Salvatore present to an English-speaking audience for the first time a comprehensive account of Schmitt legal thinking from across his entire brilliant and controversial career. The authors trace Schmitt’s jurisprudence from its early neo-Kantian origins to its fully developed concrete institutionalism. With clarity and sophistication they examine Schmitt’s basic concepts and outline the many debates he engaged in with other prominent Staatsrecht predecessors and contemporaries. A great achievement and invaluable resource.

John P. McCormick, Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago.
