The Situationality of Human-Animal Relations: Perspectives from Anthropology and Philosophy
Thiemo Breyer, Thomas Widlok
transcript Verlag, Nov 30, 2018 - Social Science - 224 pages
Riding, hunting, fishing, bullfighting: Human-animal relations are diverse. This anthology presents various case studies of situations in which humans and animals come into contact and asks for the anthropological and philosophical implications of such encounters. The contributions by renowned scholars such as Albert Piette and Kazuyoshi Sugawara present multidisciplinary methodological reflections on concepts such as embodiment, emplacement, or the »conditio animalia« (in addition to the »conditio humana«) as well as a consideration of the term »situationality« within the field of anthropology.
