"Is there a time period that dominates suggestion at the present time greater than individual? From biotechnology and social networking to organizations, individual more and more seems because the darkish center of latest existence. during this compelling and every now and then troubling mirrored image, Roberto Esposito measures the biopolitical bills of our obsession with every thing own in a failed undertaking of the typical. as opposed to the individual, Esposito counsels the impersonal point of view of the 'third person.' half family tree, half philosophical guide-book, this publication is a daring mirrored image on lifestyles and politics that maintains in unforeseen methods Esposito's past readings of biopolitics."

"Beyond the horizon of Western subjectivity, at the back of the sacralization of the individual, lies Esposito's impersonal existence. Deconstructing the 'human' and its juridical-biological structure, 3rd individual casts incisive gentle at the perilous zone which silently encircles it - the development, its anonymity and uncanniness."
Andrea Rossi, Lancaster University

The fact that this is clearly impossible does not make it certain, says Gobineau, that the cause is a limit to our intelligence. Rather we are prevented by something, by another, more despotic master, which the “idiomatic individual” is bound to in a more compul sory way than it is to the spirit: namely the biological power of the race. This is what expresses the most massive effect of mastery upon that linguistic “parasite,” “individual,” or “animal” that lives inside us as something other than ourselves: “language holds a similar value to race and reveals a similar organization appropri ate to its nature.
Just as one generation succeeds the previous one, as the newly born take the place of others - those from whom they came - similarly, those who die open up a space to live in for those who will replace them. Inevitably embedded in life, death constitutes both its absolute outside and the internal center of irradiation from which living beings experience the limits of their own identity and the extent of their alteration. 4 As long as we remain within the horizon traced out by the found ing role of biology in relation to the other disciplines of knowledge - political theory in particular - the classical notion of person (together with the associated notions of individual rights and state sovereignty) begins to show cracks in its underlying assumptions but has yet to be frontally negated.
A Celt, argues Müller, can become English, and English blood may contain elements coming from different origins. Not so languages, which are never mixed. The vocabulary and the syntax may be, but certainly not the grammar: A student of the language sciences can trace the Celtic, Norman, Greek and Latin ingredients in the English dictionary through their texts, but not a single drop of foreign blood has entered into the organic system of the English language. 41 But the person who ties the structure of a language to the biologi cal substance of the race in an even tighter knot is the Belgian linguist Joseph Honoré Chavée, founder of the Revue de Linguis tique et de Philologie Comparée and author of a text entitled Languages and Races.
