Update: a new graphic of the structure is available here.
Thanks to Nicholas Dahmann for this – the structure of Agamben’s Homo Sacer in graphic form… jpg and pdf.
Why do you think Opus Dei is II.5? My impression was that it was IV.2.
You may be right, but II, 5 is on the cover of the French translation.
I doubt they would get that wrong. So strange.
Amazon.it has it as II, 5 too. What made you think it wasn’t?
I have the galleys on my desk, and they have no indication of where it fits in the structure — so since it came out after 4.1, I figured it made sense that it’d be 4.2. I haven’t seen the cover.
When I put this together, I relied upon my French printing. Looking now to the Bollati Boringhieri Edition website, the Italian cover also reads II, 5.
The Italian edition is a handsome lavender color that matches perfectly Agamben’s sweater in an image accompanying a Portuguese translation of the Preface at the Brazilian blog TRADUZIRFANTASMAS (translate ghosts): http://traduzirfantasmas.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/giorgio-agambenopus-dei-archeologia-dellufficio-homo-sacer-ii-5-prefacio-2012/
Well, I stand corrected. Very strange.
We confirm you that Opus Dei by Giorgio Agamben is Homo Sacer II, 5.

Any guesses on what II, 4 and IV, 2 will amount to? Agamben’s latest research presented in seminars concerns an «archeology of command and will» (Paris 8, EGS), and «the use of the body» (Paris 8).
No, I have no idea. Those projects sound interesting though.

I think that the quote at the end is from “The Kingdom and the Glory” not from the “Sacrament of Language”
In turn, Agamben’s newest book, on the concept of “stasis,” is indexed as HS II,2 (rather than The Kingdom and the Glory): http://www.amazon.it/Stasis-guerra-civile-paradigma-politico/dp/8833925870/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423263789&sr=1-1&keywords=stasis+agamben
Thanks, yes – this was noted in the updated version, but appreciate the link.
Following Clootz’s comment: so there are now two books indexed as HS II, 2 — Stasis and Il regno e la gloria…?
Sources close to Agamben indicate that this is a “retcon” — K&G has been renumbered as 2.4, with Stasis now assuming the place of 2.2. This results in a completely filled-out structure.
