Agamben‌ ‌tries‌ ‌to‌ ‌answer‌ ‌the‌ ‌questions‌ ‌“‌ ‌What‌ ‌does‌ ‌it‌ ‌mean‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌contemporary?‌ ‌Who‌ ‌and‌ ‌what‌ ‌are‌ ‌we‌ ‌contemporary‌ ‌of?”‌ ‌stressing‌ ‌some‌ ‌familiar‌ ‌experiences:‌ ‌the‌ ‌archaic‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌modern,‌ ‌the‌ ‌dark‌ ‌and‌ ‌the‌ ‌light,‌ ‌time and‌ ‌fashion.‌ ‌Contemporary‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌one‌ ‌who‌ ‌perceives‌ ‌the‌ ‌beam‌ ‌of‌ ‌darkness‌ that‌ ‌comes‌ ‌from‌ ‌his‌ ‌time‌ ‌and‌ ‌not‌ ‌its‌ ‌lights,‌ ‌he‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌contemporary‌ ‌who‌ ‌adapts‌ ‌to‌ ‌his‌ ‌time‌ ‌but‌ ‌the‌ ‌one‌ ‌who‌ ‌adheres‌ ‌to‌ ‌it‌ ‌through‌ ‌an‌ ‌anachronism.‌
