This essay is dedicated to all the participants in a seminar on “life” under the auspices of the Department of Cinema and Comparative Literature at the University of Iowa in the fall of 2006. I thank a number of people without whom this project would have died: James Leo Cahill for his editorial brilliance and patience; Akira Lippit for his continuous support of this project; David Oscar Harvey for his heroic assistance in assembling the original texts; and all of my authors, especially Barbara M. Kennedy, for their patience with my own physical and professional travails, which delayed publication inordinately.
