This chapter reflects on an idea of a beyond and how it figures in an anthropology beyond the human. Why ask anthropology to look beyond the human? And why look to animals to do so? Looking at animals, who look back at us, and who look with us, and who are also, ultimately, part of us, even though their lives extend well beyond us, can tell us about how that which lies “beyond” the human also sustains us, makes us the beings we are, and those we might become.
