Keywords: animality | post-humanism | sacrifice

Animal´s place in Thus Spoke Zarathustra has been usually reduced to certain symbolic displacements of anthropocentric tone: from this particular point ofview, the Eagle represents (human) Pride; the Snake represents (human) Intelligence, and similarly for the rest of the animals. In this paper, I follow a different path to approach the subject, one that links the issue of animality to the problem of “the other”. From this perspective, the animal is presented basically as a stranger: the strange “becoming” that also we are (as animals).In this respect, Nietzschean thought may contribute to the “post- humanism” debate.
