Matter that does not remain beneath form, but surrounds it with a halo — Giorgio Agamben, The Coming Community  The political task of humanity, he argues, is to expose the innate potential in this zone of indistinguishability. And although criticised as dreaming the impossible by certain authors,  he nonetheless shows a concrete example of whatever singularity acting politically: Whatever singularity, which wants to appropriate belonging itself, its own being-in-language, and thus rejects all identity and every condition of belonging, is the principal enemy of the State. Wherever these singularities peacefully demonstrate their being in common there will be Tiananmen, and, sooner or later, the tanks will appear — Giorgio Agamben, The Coming Community  Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life [ edit ] In his main work "Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life" , Giorgio Agamben analyzes an obscure  figure of Roman law that poses fundamental questions about the nature of law and power in general. Under the laws of the Roman Empire, a man who committed a certain kind of crime was banned from society and all of his rights as a citizen were revoked. He thus became a " homo sacer " sacred man.
