The answer to last night’s question ‘Which one of these social theorists and philosophers have I not heard speak?‘ is Giorgio Agamben. He was supposed to be at a conference I attended, but cancelled, and I’ve never had another chance.
Thanks to those who replied here, on Twitter or Facebook. Gisele O’Connoll came very close with her ‘Can I have two guesses? Agamben or Habermas?’, but when I insisted on just one, went with Habermas. Adam Morton was the first to get Agamben.
