Osservatori e spettatori. Parte II: Primi lineamenti di una teoria dello spettatore giuridico

This paper traces possible theoretical outlines for the figure of the legal spectator. Engaging a multidisciplinary methodology, the analysis pivots on two types of semiotic circuits. Both demonstrate how the category ‘spectator’ is today a privileged patterns of subjectivity in order to analyze both the figure of the citizen and that of the final recipients of post-modern political and legal processes. The first signical circuit explores the logic of ‘synoptic dispositives’ as the preferred tools for the design and control of the social order. The second investigates those signs that reveal the loss of primacy of state law and the establishment of new normative sources which however lack any democratic legitimization.
