Summary
Addresses French-inspired theoretical and philosophical concerns centered on animals and animality. Contributors from France, the United Kingdom, and North America discuss animal-related topics in the French philosophical and literary tradition, offering a wide range of perspectives on animals, ethics, and the future of animal studies. Essays question the reducibility of animal lives to rights discourse on the one hand and scientific empiricisms on the other, and examine whether and how the advent of the posthuman will affect the standing and the future of the nonhuman animal.--Provided by publisher
