This chapter considers the problem of thinking singular existences as they are formed from the outside. Existence can only be encountered by the mechanism of the double advance, a dual motion that depends on the relations of existences in an existential field. In a central polyvocal section called “Coalitions,” the concept of the adventurous coalition is proposed to explain the creation of trans-jects, or subjective trajectories, through relation. This chapter also considers the implications of this new atopian trans-ject for both freedom and language. Finally, this chapter takes up the question of the trans-ject in the case of animals: Posing the subject as the repetition of an existential trans-ject, Neyrat argues, offers a way of thinking existence in its multiplicity, unpredictability, and eccentricity.

Keywords:   adventurous coalition, dis-joining, double advance, existence, trans-ject
