Peines (techniques) de (la) mort

2620I [CRN: 15793]

How is the question of the death penalty (to be) posed: in literature other than by means of affect, and in philosophy other than by means of morality? What if there were a “prior” question deriving from the fact that what the death penalty interrupts, and technologizes, is the naturality of the time of life and death? We will trace responses in texts from Villon to Camus, Hugo to Badinter, Kant to Derrida.
