What People are Saying About This

Stephen Eric Bronner

Carl Schmitt is among the most important political thinkers of the century. His work has proven influential on the right and, more recently, on the left. His interchange with Jacob Taubes in this volume, another interesting thinker, is remarkably clear and provides a window into their relationship and a framework for broader discussion.
