Paolo Napoli

teaches Histoire des catégories et des pratiques normatives at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. After working on the legal-political thought of Michel Foucault and the concept of “police” between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in France and Germany, his interests turned to a genealogy of administrative rationality based on theological and canonical sources.

Once considered a stepchild of social theory, legal criticism has received a great deal of attention in recent years, perpetuating what has always been an ambivalent relationship. On the one hand, law is praised for being a cultural achievement, on the other, it is criticised for being an instrument of state oppression. Legal criticism’s strategies to deal with this ambivalence differ greatly: while some theoreticians seek to transcend the institution of law altogether, others advocate a transformation of the form of law or try to employ counter-hegemonic strategies to change the content of law, deconstruct its basis or invent rights. By presenting a variety of heterogeneous approaches to legal criticism, this volume points out transitions and exhibits irreconcilable differences of these approaches. Without denying the diversity of different forms of critique, they are related to one another with the aim of broadening the debates which all too often are conducted only within the boundaries of the separate theoretical currents.
