Nietzsche and the Becoming of Life

The problem of animality in Nietzsche’s thought, especially in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, is a key to understanding the transition to the figure of the overhuman. Starting from this hypothesis, I analyze the possibility of thinking the animal in the direction of this figure, “beyond” or “over” any humanist assumption. The goal of this chapter is to capture some of the possibilities opened up by contemporary thought concerning the question of the living non-human and its way of being. I explore this “other way of being” in Nietzsche and discuss this question in relation to the contemporary debates on biopolitics.
