BIOPOLÍTICA Y COLONIALIDAD. UNA LECTURA CRÍTICA DE HOMO SACER

Tabula Rasa 01/2010;

ABSTRACT This paper revisit Giorgio Agamben's theses - mainly present in Homo sacer I- on biopolitics, sovereign power and bare life. It aims to formulate a criticism to the author's arguments emphasizing connection between some law arcana and certain technologies of population control, under the eminently ontological assumption of the question, which -from our perspective-, the phenomenon of biopolitics fall into. More precisely, in relation to the last one, we are asking a question about the place Colonialism occupies, not only in the 19th century, in the historical-conceptual argument Agamben moves through -even though Michel Foucault did it too, to a lesser extent. Conversely, it is noted the subsidiary place within which those colonial regime-like forms of "government on populations" are inscribed by these theoretical frameworks.
