The concept of the political by Carl Schmitt( Book )

172 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this, his most influential work, legal theorist and political philosopher Carl Schmitt argues that liberalism's basis in individual rights cannot provide a reasonable justification for sacrificing oneself for the state--a critique as cogent today as when it first appeared.

The crisis of parliamentary democracy by Carl Schmitt( Book )

100 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described both as "the Hobbes of our age" and as "the philosophical godfather of Nazism," Carl Schmitt was a brilliant and controversial political theorist whose doctrine of political leadership and critique of liberal democratic ideals distinguish him as one of the most original contributors to modern political theory. The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy offers a powerful criticism of the inconsistencies of representative democracy. First published in 1923, it has often been viewed as an attempt to destroy parliamentarism; in fact, it was Schmitt's attempt to defend the Weimar constitution. The introduction to this new translation places the book in proper historical context and provides a useful guide to several aspects of Weimar political culture. The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy

Writings on war by Carl Schmitt( Book )

42 editions published between 1937 and 2015 in German and English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writings on War collects three of Carl Schmitt's most important and controversial texts, here appearing in English for the first time: The Turn to the Discriminating Concept of War, The Großraum Order of International Law, and The International Crime of the War of Aggression and the Principle "Nullum crimen, nulla poena sine lege". Written between 1937 and 1945, these works articulate Schmitt's concerns throughout this period of war and crisis, addressing the major failings of the League of Nations, and presenting Schmitt's own conceptual history of these years of disaster for international jurisprudence. For Schmitt, the jurisprudence of Versailles and Nuremberg both fail to provide for a stable international system, insofar as they attempt to impose universal standards of "humanity" on a heterogeneous world, and treat efforts to revise the status quo as "criminal" acts of war. In place of these flawed systems, Schmitt argues for a new planetary order in which neither collective security organizations nor 19th century empires, but Schmittian "Reichs" will be the leading subject of international law. -- Publisher description
Les trois types de pensée juridique by Carl Schmitt( Book )

43 editions published between 1934 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "« L'adhésion de Carl Schmitt au mouvement national-socialiste dès 1933 a jeté sur l'ensemble de son œuvre une ombre inquiétante », écrit Dominique Séglard en présentation de cet ouvrage. Dans ce texte issu de deux conférences prononcées en 1934 à l'occasion de l'anniversaire de la prise de pouvoir d'Hitler, Carl Schmitt mêle sa pensée économique aux bases de sa justification morale et juridique du nazisme. Il y met en concurrence trois types de pensée juridique : le normativisme, le décisionnisme et la pensée de l'ordre concret, dans laquelle l'État possède un pouvoir absolu, la seule conforme à l'essence du peuple allemand. Il conservera cette substance dans sa pensée toute sa vie, alors même que c'est cette vision trop éloignée de la Volksgemeinschaft qui lui vaudra les critiques et le désaveu des cadres du régime dès 1934. Plus qu'un document historique, ce texte est un élément essentiel à la compréhension de la pensée globale de Carl Schmitt."

The enemy : an intellectual portrait of Carl Schmitt by Gopal Balakrishnan( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The writings of Carl Schmitt form what is arguably the most disconcerting, original, and yet still unfamiliar body of twentieth-century political thought. In the English-speaking world, he is terra incognita, a name associated with Nazism, and the author of a largely untranslated oeuvre forming no recognizable system, which comes to us from a disturbing place and time in the form of fragments."
