About this title:

Synopsis:

Since Jacques Derrida's 1989 essay "Force of Law: the Mystical Foundations of Authority," Carl Schmitt has been a perennial subject of Derrida's political critique. I will argue that Derrida's concept of auto-immunity is uniquely applicable to Derrida's interpretation of Schmitt's political philosophy. Derrida is a philosopher of a thousand faces. Perhaps, his last face was his concept of auto-immunity. Derrida begins to utilize this biological concept as early as the 1990s, but only after the terrorist attacks of September 11th does this concept becomes a predominate schema in which Derrida configures his philosophy. Derrida's schema of auto-immunity also has a thousand faces. In many ways, this is the final concept of an illustrious history of prior concepts. Indeed, auto-immunity is deconstruction. As Michael Naas puts it: "Undecideability, aporia, antinomy, double bind: autoimmunity is explicitly inscribed in Rogues into a veritable 'best of collection' of Derrideo-phemes or deconstructo-nyms" (Naas, p. 29). I will exhibit how this schema uniquely applies to Derrida's account of Carl Schmitt's political philosophy as early as "Force of Law" and The Politics of Friendship.
