Political power is wielded in ways that are culturally and historically contingent, meaning that how these distortions occur and what effects they generate will vary according to the constitution of the regime in question. This talk explores historical fluctuations in the temporality of power in Prussia and reflects on their implications for our understanding of politics in the present.
