In this contribution I will try to show the untimeliness of Agamben’s thought in terms of its peculiar disconnection and phase-shift. In the first part I will focus on the texts which inaugurate the philosophical adventure of the roman thinker: Favola e fato, La 121a Giornata di Sodoma e Gomorra, L’uomo senza contenuto. Of these texts, which testify young Agamben’s approach towards Nietzsche’s thought, I will try to capture the peculiar critical performance towards the German philosopher. In the second part, through a comparison between Giorgio Agamben and Furio Jesi, I will try to highlight the theoretical approach that both authors borrow from Nietzsche’s thought, in order to exhibit the shaping of Agamben’s archeological and political praxis.
