Jacques Derrida speaks of a letter from Carl Schmitt to Walter Benjamin which does not actually exist. It is a "Purloined Letter" and the main defendant is History. From this theft, real or fictitious, a plot unfolds that sheds light on some aspects of the relationship between Schmitt and Benjamin and on the cross-reading of an outsider like Georges Sorel. At stake is the clash between anarchy and statism under the incipient shadows of National Socialism.
