Video Lectures: Giorgio Agamben (and many others if you look around) at the European Graduate School
Found here. I hope to make my way through a few of them soon. I'm reading Homo Sacer right now, and it is fascinating to say the least. I do not have a sufficient grasp of the book to make any remarks on it as of yet, except for the interesting observation that he is one of the few 'Continental' thinkers who makes reference to Strauss at multiple points in the work, and not in a damning way. Hopefully in the next week I will post something analyzing the role of Strauss in this book, as minuscule as it may be.
