The present paper represents a phenomenological reflexion on the question of animality. Drawing from a selection of phenomenological texts, ranging from Husserl and Heidegger to Maurice Merleau-Ponty, the author pleads for a different view of animality than that which would posit a neatly cut anthropological difference between the human subject and animal. In the final section of the text, the difficult question of inter-animality (as opposed to intersubjectivity) is treated in some detail.
