Abstract

Abstract:

This essay explores the question of "animality" and "human difference" as problems for politics and philosophy. If thought is the difference between human and non-human animals, and if, as Badiou argues, "politics is a thought," does this mean that there is no "political dimension" to the human cohabitation of the earth with animals? Until we can conceive of a "common polity" among humans and other animals, there has to be a very careful consideration of strong borders that should not be crossed by humans.
