    One thought on “The Challenge of Carl Schmitt”

    1. Was a little disappointed with this collection of essays. I thought there was a tendency to not go out on a limb and the book very much had that air of academic conservatism about it. Essays are well-written but not necessarily thought-provoking at all times.

    2. There are a few interesting esssays in this collection but it wasn't great. Overall it wasn't that essential.
