This chapter will discuss the deconstructive approach once more, now in direct relation to the question of animality and as an alternative to the decolonial approach of the same question. Although radically different in their ‘methodology,’ the outcomes of both approaches come together where they problematize the overlapping of a racist and speciesist othering of the non-human-animal and the animal nature of the human being. Both are needed to blur the dividing lines that kept the possibility of spiritual encounters between human and animal out of the realm of valid knowledge as delineated by modern philosophy. Thus a critique is introduced of modernist anthropology as ‘the study of man.’
