Derrida eläinten jäljillä

Derrida Tracing Animals

This article examines the figure of the animal as a thread that runs through Derrida's corpus and permits to articulate several of its seemingly different strata. The animal according to the mechanist hypothesis explains the functioning of the "trace", the animal figured by the dynamist hypothesis that of the "différance". The animal's particular relation to death defines its "spectrality", that connects the question of the animal to fiction, politics and ethics.
