While Derrida does not link his critique of the West's construction of "the animal" to the Jew, Agamben does make a point of showing how the anthropological machine has been put to the use of animalizing the Jew.
Morin (2016b, 2,17) compares the "disciplinary regimes and structures of violence" of human carceral settings with animal captivity, illustrating parallel "oppressions." This author highlights the harms of animalizing humans, whereby imprisoned bodies are reduced to the disposability of bare life (after Agamben).
As such, Cartesian dualism fueled a modern anthropological machine--a machine that lives on in the contemporary administrative state (see Catlaw & Holland, 2012)--that "functions by excluding as not (yet) human an already human being from itself, that is, by animalizing the human, by isolating the nonhuman within the human" (Agamben, 2004, p.
In other words, it is not so much about humanizing the animal, nor about animalizing the human, rather it is about rising above the asphyxiating implications of such structures, about venturing into a terrain so virginal that even language has yet to conceptualize it through nomenclature.

While other countries' newspapers also contributed to animalizing the Communardes, the promotion of the bourgeois family unit was particularly important in the nation-building context and, more specifically, that of the Canadian "moral dominion." (38)
An additional identity category the text discusses in a dehumanizing, even animalizing, context, is race.
In The Open, he clarifies this reading of politics as bound up with tensions at the site of "bare life" with an account of Western politics as involving an anthropological machine that "functions by excluding as not (yet) human an already human being from itself, that is, by animalizing the human, by isolating the non-human within the human." Like the fundamental exercise of sovereignty as understood since the work of Carl Schmitt, the anthropological machine "produces a kind of state of exception" (Agamben 37).
