collection of studies looking at domestication from a philosophical perspective 5 Sept. 2013
By Just Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does cover more than philosophical aspects of domestication, such as disease transmission, but philosophy is the overriding theme. I found it tedious, but if you have a great interest in the topic in general or one of the specific topics listed below, it may be worth a look. Just remember, it's philosophical, so, for example, the last chapter isn't about "how to feed your dog", it's about various groups debating about how to feed dogs (whole carcasses, kibble, or ???).
