The essay deals with the concept of Homo Sacer in relation with the state of exception. Giorgio Agamben argues that the state of exception has become in the contemporary society a paradigmatic practice of the West, which transforms individuals into subjects prone to exclusion or extermination. The essay consists of two parts, on the one hand the part in which I question the concepts and on the other hand a section that analyze some contemporary cases.
