Schmitt published several essays, influential in the 20th century and beyond, on the mentalities that surround the effective wielding of political power. His ideas have attracted the attention of numerous philosophers and political theorists, including Walter Benjamin, Leo Strauss, Jacques Derrida, Étienne Balibar, Hannah Arendt, Giorgio Agamben, Antonio Negri, Gianfranco Miglio, Paolo Virno, Slavoj ?i?ek, Alain Badiou, Jacob Taubes, Chantal Mouffe, Eric Voegelin and Paul Gottfried. Much of his work remains both influential and controversial today. He is described as a "classic of political thought" by Herfried Münkler, while in the same article Münkler speaks of his post-war writings as reflecting an: "embittered, jealous, occasionally malicious man" ("verbitterten, eifersüchtigen, gelegentlich bösartigen Mann"). Schmitt was known as the "Crown Jurist of the Third Reich" ("Kronjurist des Dritten Reiches" - Waldemar Gurian), much of his work promoted fascism and sought to deconstruct liberal democracy.
