In particular, it depends upon whether there is free land to be had [ob ein Spielraum freien Bodens vorhanden ist]. (82) If every nomos, defined as the appropriation, distribution, and exploitation of a given space, is essentially the equilibrium of a global spatial arrangement (in other words, a stable geopolitical structure), we can understand that its foundation demands a possibility for movement that is not already included in the preexisting order. The institution of a new nomos implies, as the German term Spielraum indicates, a space where there is room to maneuver, where there is some play.

In a way that is ambivalent and indirect, to say the least, Schmitt, in Nomos of the Earth, reluctantly 42 ) ) STAR WARS recognizes this despite all by deeming Kantian cosmopolitanism, without naming it as such, a “success” that is all the greater given that it is deferred. ” He continues, “But perhaps it is also a presentiment of a new nomos of the earth [die Ahnung eines neuen Nomos der Erde]” (168, translation slightly modified). This attributes a great deal of importance and credit to what was earlier qualified as mere confusion (Verwirrung).

Yet this “collision of land war and sea war” was limited to “the fringes” (am Rande) of the two spheres. 24 Within the nomos structured this way, armed confrontations and conflicts occur according to what Schmitt describes as “warring parties fac[ing] each other on the same plane” (319): Adversaries are co-present in a homogeneous theater of operations, in the same territory that carries them and places them with the one facing the other.
