    Abstract

    This paper uses the the Deleuzian notion of exhaustion to question the meaning of justice. It does this with reference to a number of literary authors, primarily Samuel Beckett. The paper argues for a non-anthropomorphic evaluation of human potential, and maintains that this is the condition for any viable understanding of justice. Within this, it argues for the significance of contestation and democratic institutions against neo-liberal competition.
