With "The Beast and the Sovereign," Volume 1, the University of Chicago Press inaugurates an ambitious series, edited by Geoffrey Bennington and Peggy Kamuf, translating these important works into English. "The Beast and the Sovereign," Volume 1 launches the series with Derrida s exploration of the persistent association of bestiality or animality with sovereignty. In this seminar from 2001 2002, Derrida continues his deconstruction of the traditional determinations of the human. The beast and the sovereign are connected, he contends, because neither animals nor kings are subject to the law the sovereign stands above it, while the beast falls outside the law from below. He then traces this association through an astonishing array of texts, including La Fontaine s fable The Wolf and the Lamb, Hobbes s biblical sea monster in "Leviathan," D. H. Lawrence s poem Snake, Machiavelli s "Prince" with its elaborate comparison of princes and foxes, a historical account of Louis XIV attending an elephant autopsy, and Rousseau s evocation of werewolves in "The Social Contract." Deleuze, Lacan, and Agamben also come into critical play as Derrida focuses in on questions of force, right, justice, and philosophical interpretations of the limits between man and animal.".
