I also owe much to the anonymous reviewers who engaged so productively and insightfully with this work. Volk C From Nomos to Lex: Furthermore, her marginal comments about justice should and can be coupled with her writings which address the conditions of human plurality, dignity, and politics in the post-Westphalian world.

Beyond the balanced interstate system, the free sea is a zone in which substate agents and state proxies become responsible for the concrete practices of European expansion overseas. Land-appropriation, in his interpretation, is tantamount to acquisition or the establishment of territorial right.

At the same time nkmos human artifact, i. Paperbackpages. See for example Moreiras; Hooker; Teschke; and Benton I could go on, and there is tons more to talk about in the major concepts that he dee, but this is obscenely long already, and you probably get the idea. Until finally the concepts no longer merely provide placards, names, etc.

Here, Schmitt ren- ders an account in which dfr is established through the primordial relationship of a people to the soil—through conquest, the drawing of borders, and the distribution of land. Rather than the state, therefore, it was substate corporations, merchants and even rogue state officials who were most responsible for European presence in the region.

For pre-modern men the sea was therefore a boundless, indistinct space and, as such, a source of mistrust, uneasiness, and anxiety. Thus, the image of the shepherd is applicable only when an illustration of the relation of a god to human beings is intended.


In the opinion of some, Land und Meer could even be interpreted as a response to Mahan, largely inspired by Hegelian philosophy. While Jaspers enthusiastically embraced the idea of an international court for crimes against humanity, Arendt was unsure.

It is also a product of work, and its condition, worldliness.

“Beyond the Line”: Reading Nietzsche with Schmitt

Political Studies 56 1: The expanses of the seas were free not because they were available to all international actors, carll because they were without regulations, at the eerde of anarchy and of the free and ruthless use of violence sanctioned by the amity lines. The sea thus has a dual and ambivalent identity: The occupation that did occur took the form of feitorias, or trading ports, from which Portuguese and other European nationals engaged in trade, regulated and limited by the African polities of the regions.

First of all, the nomos of a political community is a territorial jurisdiction, which is the modern instantiation of the city-wall. Compared with this first paradigm, dee subsequent development of ” global linear thinking ” had a radically disruptive effect, bringing major changes to the international system. In the first instance, the division contained conflict between Spain and Portugal within the shared order of the respublica Christiana.

Sovereignty and international law. Each was universal in its own right.

But Schmitt wrote his most influential works, as a young professor of constitutional cagl in Bonn and later in Berlin, during the Weimar-period: So, now you know. Not all enemies are criminals- an enemy you still have to treat like a human being, and not subject to total annihilation, because technically all war is allowable, within certain bounds.

For example, Schmitt ignores the historical fact that in newly founded colonial regimes, a primary site of land-appropriation, most law did not arise from the soil. For Schmitt, this mythical constitution of community requires land-appropriation: He interestingly applies this to the growth of piracy at this time too: Der Staat im Denken Hannah Arendts. A system independent erdw the law of the state was connected to a normative system that, as we have seen, would escape the noomos of the state from the start, as it was the product of mercantile practice and of spontaneous agreements among traders perfected by jurists.


The absolute originality of maritime law represents an independent normative genusas distinct from legal systems of the land.

Schmitt’s theory is an important starting-point in this sense for reflecting on the link between global law and the order arising from the breakdown of the jus publicum Europaeum. This is the beginning of the end. It gives an emphasis to the fact of the amity line, which makes possible a rich epistemic reward Beuteafter which the mere fact has brought about a sufficiently factual reward.

Schmitt applies the geopolitical observations he made in ‘Land and Sea’ and is able to critique the development of the world-view of a country like the US by using this model. On the importance of the archipelago in pre-modern international law see G. Koskenniemi M International law as political theology: Habermas J Interpreting the Fall of a Monument.

Thus borders and citizenship policies may be concrete, but, normatively, they should also be the intersubjective product of non-sovereign pol- itics. In Schmitt’s view, the European sovereign state was the greatest achievement of Occidental rationalism; in becoming the principal agency of secularization, the European state created the modern age. As res communis omnium the sea was out of the jurisdiction of the dominus mundi and therefore legally immeasurable, foreign to any legal title.
