abstract

The article proposes an analysis of Walter Benjamin’s writings on law, more specifically on the author’s critique of the violent dimension of law. It seeks to analyze the genesis of the concept of “dispossession of law” [“Entsetzung des Rechts”] and its use within Benjamin’s writings. The article is divided into three parts: the first part seeks to contextualize Benjamin’s critique of law in light of the Marxian conception of right. In a second moment, the notion of “Entsetzung des Rechts” is analyzed, as well as its possible interpretations based on the semantic scope inscribed in the term and in the German language. Finally, the paper will seek to clarify the notion of Entsetzung des Rechts in relation to other concepts and texts of the author.
