Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.3 RD

[In the camp, the ones who are able to maintain the interscope are more likely to survive. They accept the perspective level, including the insane capricious rules, for what they are. Life is reduced to practical considerations: How do I survive?

The ones who process the camp as an intersection do not survive. The ones who do not survive realize that the something that I may choose1V no longer corresponds to the potentials inherent in me1H.

They realize that they have hearts. Broken hearts. Then they die.]

[What does Giorgio Agamben mean by the term “homo sacer” (Latin for “sacred man”).

In the camp, the sovereign holds the individual under the law as one to whom the law does not apply.

Why does the sovereign hold but the law not apply?

The subject is deemed a thinkanti-object, who has conscienceanti-object. So “his” very thoughts are crimes.]
