The move from a specific, procedurally agambdn authorization to an informal suspension corresponds to the conceptual shift—from the exception understood as an alternative rule to the exception as a gap or void in the law.

Quite simply, Agamben aligns the agwmben consultum with subsequent exercises of emergency powers because he does not find in the dictatorship the qualities of simultaneity and contradiction that he wants to bring to the foreground.

Thus, Agamben is intentionally provocative in his attempt to redefine the state of exception by abandoning its origin in the magistracy of the dictatorship and relocating its genealogy in the Roman practice known as iustitiuma standstill or suspension of action, for example, during a period of public mourning.


Reminding ourselves of Europe as a savage continent. In truth, the early Roman dictatorship is just as apt a model for modern states of emergency as the senatus consultum.
