Reframe the problem

“As always, to stick to the schema of my recurrent and deconstructive objections to this whole traditional discourse on “the animal” (as though any such thing could exist in the general singular), one must not be content to mark the fact that what is attributed as “proper to man” also belongs to other living beings if you look more closely, but also, conversely, that what is attributed as proper to man does not belong to him in all purity and all rigor; and that one must therefore restructure the whole problematic.”
