Main researcher: 
Carlos França
Objectives: 

This ongoing project addresses, in a first stage, the question of animality (living human being in his relationship with living not human being) under a wide philosophical perspective in which also the notions of World and Spectrum are considered, in order to build an analytic frame for the research. In a second stage, we will try to extend the research to the onto-aesthetical level of artwork, basing it on two fundamental questions: the World, in its relationship to human existence and bio-political community, and the Spectrum, inasmuch it is a living, pulsional force in the figural (spectral) dimension of artworks as from the phantasmagoric zone of indiscernibility between human being and animal.
