Questioning the Human/Animal Threshold

Critical Theory Lectures Series on Animality,
Lecture by Federico Sollazzo:
Questioning the Human/Animal Threshold:
For a Critical Anthropocentrism

To criticize anthropocentrism is an essential task to every man who wishes to problematize his own condition of human being. In so doing, we should always be aware that are still humans to criticize their human condition.
This is the reason why if we take the critique of anthropocentrism as a way for deleting our specificities of men, we fall into a kind of “imaginary anthropocentrism”.

Anthropocentrism, threshold, emancipation, man, animal, animalcentrism, carno-phallogocentrism, vegeto-vaginointuitionism.
