The Fifth Chapter (Economy and the Legal Framework) returns to Agamben’s genealogy of economy discussed in the introduction and tackles his critique of Foucault’s genealogy of pastoral power. Following a presentation of what is known in canon law literature as “the principle of economy” it discusses the resemblances and differences between pastoral economy and political sovereignty as revealed in the state of exception.

Keywords:   Giorgio Agamben, Carl Schmitt, state of Exception, Pastoral Power: Canon Law: The Principle of Economy
