Abstract

By using the example of the tick, “Agamben presents [the tick] as a sort of third term between or beyond […] the system of the anthropological machine” (Attell, 2015, p. 175), namely with the structures of separation and domination of the animal sphere. I wish to focus on a different critical remark which concerns the analogy between the tick and boredom. There are at least two main points that deserve thorough discussion but that I can only hint at here: a) Is it possible to use boredom as a middle term between the human and the animal condition? b) Can the anthropological phenomenon «boredom» be reduced to its description offered by Heidegger and Agamben?
