La justice, la loi, la violence

Abstract : This paper aims to investigate the relationship between Justice, Law, laws and power. It will focus on the views of Thomas Hobbes's definition of justice, as to say according to Jacques Derrida, the concept of "justice as Law, of justice as it becomes laws, of the law as Law". This perception of justice is necessarily inseparable from the brutal power as violence. Although this article is largely limited to this critique, I follow Walter Benjamin and Derrida, especially the latter who shows two possibilities : thinking justice beyond laws and Law, and relating justice with another idea of strength that is not violence.
