In this chapter, the relation between biological and political life is discussed in light of the ideal of a philosophical life as a life that approximates a materialist, anti-spiritualist conception of “eternal life” as found in Aristotle, Spinoza and in contemporary post-Deleuzian conceptions of the thinking body. This conception of eternal life is contrasted with Heidegger’s existential idea of philosophical life as being-toward-death.
