In the Place of Language

Claudia Brodsky

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses sovereignty, and how the concept can be applied in language. Lanzmann's approach to the movie was related to the way intellects (like Agamben, Heidegger, and Kant) see what language is. In addition to human capacity for thinking, the thinking of human capacity may lead to sociological consequences and affect society, just like language does, having its“sovereignty”.

Keywords:   sovereignty, language, Agamben, Heidegger, Kant, human capacity
