1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly bad, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally predictable plot, very badly written, full of cliches. I bought it to practice my Italian but it was torture reading such rubbish!

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight talking, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very originsal take on the discourse of scientific papers in Social Sciences. Very much a book for specialists but should be fascinating for those interested in finding a better way to write science. On the downside, it tends to become rather repetitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating insight into the socio-biological origins of emotions of solidarity and generosity and evidence of these emotions in other species. Recommended for any one interested in relations between humans and other animals and in the basic characteristics of human nature.


Pets, People, and Pragmatism (American Philosophy (FUP))

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive and self-justificatory, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The topic is interesting and important but the treatment of it is repetitive in the extreme which becomes very tedious. Also many of the arguments are somewhat circular and often seem designed to justify the kind of relationships the author has with her pets and the kinds of activities she does or does not permit them or ask of them. Very disappointing.
