Book Description

30 May 2004
Animal Philosophy is the first text to look at the place and treatment of animals in Continental thought. A collection of essential primary and secondary readings on the animal question, it brings together contributions from the following key Continental thinkers: Nietzsche, Heidegger, Bataille, Levinas, Foucault, Deleuze, Guattari, Derrida, Ferry, Cixous, and Irigaray.

Each reading is followed by commentary and analysis from a leading contemporary thinker. The coverage of the subject is exceptionally broad, ranging across perspectives that include existentialism, poststructuralism, postmodernism, phenomenology and feminism. This anthology is an invaluable one-stop resource for anyone researching, teaching or studying animal ethics and animal rights in the fields of philosophy, cultural studies, literary theory, sociology, environmental studies and gender and women's studies.

Product Description


"This much-needed volume will hopefully serve to encourage interest in the zoopolitical impact of these thinkers. Overall, the collected abstracts are generally well chosen. The range is broad.... The commentaries vary in their clarity and helpfulness, but on the whole are excellent. "Animal Philosophy" successfully accomplishes its goal - to be, as its blurb says, 'an invaluable one-stop resource for anyone researching, teaching or studying animal ethics'. In assembling these various writings, whose dispersion has too often allowed them to go unnoticed, the editors have provided a means by which the Continental voice can be more fully heard in philosophical debates regarding animals. Indeed, if we take as criteria not simply the presence of concern for animals, but rather the potential for incisive theoretical tools - ethical theories that "include" the nonhuman, social analytics that "see" the nonhuman, literary methods that "write" the nonhuman - we may find the diverse and difficult modes of thought offered to be uniquely valuable sources of insight." - "The Bible and Critical Theory", Vol. 1 No. 2, 2005--Sanford Lakoff

By Waleed Farea Mahdi - Published on
Animal Philosophy is an interesting book that includes selection of some philosopher's views about animals as well as a scholarly article that analyzes each philosopher's view.

I would recommend for deep understanding of animals, their rights, and their relationships to humans
