Example text

It is not only identities among humans that are performative but also, as I have argued elsewhere, human identity itself is performative (Peggs, 2009a). So, taking Butler’s contention, I argued that human is not something that we are, rather it is something that we do. So, when we communicate through, for example, human language we are ‘doing’ human. To complicate this further, the discourses we use to talk about ‘language’ often define ‘language’ as human; so when we are defining language we are also usually doing human.

Taking human notions of what is a ‘human’ and what is an ‘animal’ as a case in point, he says, ‘The idea of man or of animal is not personal to me; it is to a large extent common to me with all the people that belong to the same social group as me’ (Durkheim, 2005, p. 37). Hence, for Durkheim, our notion of ‘human’ or of ‘animal’ (or of any other concept for that matter) is common to individuals in society, but it is only because they are common that we can engage in what he calls ‘intellectual exchange’ with each other (2005, p.

Human’ and ‘animal’ similarity: Some arguments from genetics Research in human genetics has endorsed the idea that there is a biological foundation to human behaviour. For example, the sequencing of the human genome has been credited with assisting in an understanding of ‘the biology of addiction’ by enabling researchers to ‘identify genes that contribute to individual risk for addiction and those through which drugs cause addiction’ (Nestler, 2001, p. 834) and, along with environmental factors, human genetics are seen as having a key role ‘in determining aggressive tendencies’ (Craig, 2007, p.
