9780745690643: Persons and Things: From the Body's Point of View (Theory Redux)

What is the relationship between persons and things? And how does the body transform this relationship? In this highly original new book, Roberto Esposito - one of Italy’s leading political philosophers - considers these questions and shows that starting from the body, rather than from the thing or the person, can help us to reconsider the status of both.

Ever since its beginnings, our civilization has been based on a strict, unequivocal distinction between persons and things, founded on the instrumental domination of persons over things. This opposition arose out of ancient Roman law and persisted throughout modernity, to take its place in our current global market, where it continues to generate growing contradictions. Although the distinction seems to appear clear and necessary to us, what we are continually witnessing in legal, economic, and technological practice is a reversal of perspectives: some categories of persons are becoming assimilated with things, while some types of things are taking on a personal profile.

With his customary rigour, Roberto Esposito argues that there exists an escape route out of this paradox, constituted by a new point of view founded in the body. Neither a person nor a thing, the human body becomes the decisive element in rethinking the concepts and values that govern our philosophical, legal, and political lexicons.

About the Author:

Roberto Esposito is Professor of the History of Political Thought at the University of Naples

Review:

Continuing his elaboration of the dispositive of person first set out in Third Person, philosopher Roberto Esposito turns his attention in this new book to the often troubled relation between human being and thing. The result is not only a wondrous reading of the semantics of the person and thing. but also an invitation to consider ?the living body? of multitudes as a possible response. Working across the fields of political philosophy and law, Persons and Things offers the reader dazzling perspectives on person as thing and thing as person. This, quite simply, is a brilliant book.
Timothy Campbell, Cornell University
