In the book The Time That Remains, Giorgio Agamben recovers the Pauline formula of hos me (as not), inscribed in 1 Corinthians, 7, 29-31, and interprets it as a definition of a life-form" in which he is living, without denying them, but simply using them", a formula to which the medieval Franciscan concept of "simple use of fact" is associated. Critic of contemporary sovereign power, Agamben proposes the dissolution of the apparatuses that sustain the sacralization of such power, by the inoperosity, by a new use that can be made of politics. In the work of Giorgio Agamben, we want to investigate the contemporary of the Pauline formula in its relationship with the Franciscan, in order to better understand the concept of inoperosity developed by Agamben, which implies in the deactivation of the contemporary devices of power.
