Making Sense of 'Public' Emergencies
Philosophy of Management. Volume 8, Number 2 (2009), p. 31-54.
In this article, I seek to make sense of the oft-invoked idea of ‘public emergency’ and of some of its (supposedly) radical moral implications. I challenge controversial claims by Tom Sorell, Michael Walzer, and Giorgio Agamben, and argue for a more discriminating understanding of the category and its moral force.
