Otherworldly worlds: Rethinking animality with and beyond Martin Heidegger
Södertörn University.
2017 (English)In: Studia Phænomenologica, ISSN 1582-5647, E-ISSN 2069-0061, Vol. 17, p. 57-81Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

By setting up a dialogue with contemporary animal research the essay attempts, on the one hand, to expose the limits of Martin Heidegger's concept of animality in The Fundamental Concepts of Metaphysics, and, on the other hand, to propose some new ways of thinking the being of those animals that most distinctly show themselves as being other than Heidegger's claims. I suggest, with reference to Heidegger's thesis of the animal as "poor in world," that the being of the cognitively most complex animals is better understood in terms of otherworldly worlds within the world of human world forming. With this concept I aim to develop and continue, rather than criticize, Heidegger's way of thinking the being of animals and deepen the productive relationship between science and philosophy that Heidegger proposed in this work.
