Review

In this marvelous book, Marder set out to expose the hermeneutic nature of Schmitt's political ontology as no one has ever done before. Through a deconstructive reading, Schmitt's political philosophy is put in a dialogue with contemporary thought, giving politics new ontological vitality. Not only Schmitt scholars but also all those interested in the meaning of politics after deconstruction will find this book to be an indispensable text. A genuine "must read." —Gianni Vattimo and Santiago Zabala, authors of Hermeneutic Communism

"Michael Marder's brilliant explication of the philosophical content of Carl Schmitt's political theory is, at the same time, a profound exploration of the very possibility of political philosophy in the wake of phenomenology, existentialism and deconstruction. No one has written more lucidly or insightfully on Schmitt's philosophical standing and on the fundamental problems of the political. Groundless Existence is the new gold standard in Schmitt scholarship and an indispensable point of reference in political philosophy."
—Russell Berman, Professor of German Studies and Comparative Literature & Walter A. Haas Professor in the Humanities, Stanford University

Brilliantly revisiting Schmitt's concepts in the context of a political ontology understood within an existential-phenomenological framework, Michael Marder furnishes one of the most powerful, original and interesting reflections on Carl Schmitt's work from a philosophical point of view. —Alexandre Franco de Sá, Professor of Philosophy, University of Coimbra, Portugal


Tracing Schmitt's ideas to their philosophical underpinnings and beyond to their very essence, the human experience, Michael Marder breaks new ground in Schmitt scholarship. — George Schwab, Professor Emeritus, CUNY
