About This Book
'A brilliant analysis of the ambiguous boundaries that separate and bind humans and animals' - The Irish Times, Dublin
Animal assesses the way we live with animals, examining the paradoxes of our relationships with them. Why is the pet that sits by the dinner table as we consume other kinds of meat never for eating? What does it mean to wear fake fur? Why are animals such a constant presence in childrenĄ¯s literature and films? Drawing examples from literature, film, science, advertising, fashion, and philosophy, Animal argues that we canĄ¯t think about animals without thinking about ourselves, challenging a number of assumptions and making us reconsider a wide range of ethical issues.
