Abstract

This is a proposition to read the deconstruction of sovereignty in Jacques Derrida’s seminar, The Beast and the Sovereign, in the light of Amazonian thought, which suggests that what links sovereignty and animality is not necessarily their common externality vis-à-vis the law but the capacities shared by human and nonhuman beings that are not external to language or the political. South American shamanic texts articulate the isonomic relationship between the jaguar and the shaman as an expression of a cosmopolitics that conveys the mutual implication of sovereignty and freedom, human and nonhuman, life and nonlife, the law and its exteriority.
