Potentiality or Movement as Rest
This chapter focuses on the mute physical body situated between identities, concepts, and philosophical traditions in relation to Giorgio Agamben’s appropriation of Aristotle’s concept of potentiality. It examines the silence of the body that has not been mutilated and rendered mute, but the body that serves as a “brute” index of subjugation and power to demonstrate humAnimal possibility. The chapter concludes with a description of the body in terms of dynamism and time, or when silence or rest manifests itself as the body’s heart of movement.
