Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on Friedrich Nietzsche's animal philosophy and biopolitics. It provides insights into how biopolitics can be approached through Nietzsche's treatment of the question of animal life. It concludes that Nietzsche provides a way to understand the relationship between animality and humanity, which can be given a new and productive interpretation by seeing it as developing an affirmative sense of biopolitics.
