Animals and Society (RLE Social Theory): The Humanity of by Keith Tester

By Keith Tester

Animals and Society makes use of various old resources and a coherent social conception to inform the tale of the discovery of animal rights. It strikes from incidents just like the medieval execution of pigs to a dialogue of the politics and methods of contemporary rights agencies. The publication additionally provides radical interpretations of nineteenth-century animal welfare legislation, and the money owed of the Noble Savage. The insights generated via social technology are continuously on the center of the dialogue and the writer daws at the paintings of Michel Foucault, Norbert Elias, Claude Levi-Strauss and Mary Douglas. This wide-ranging and available e-book presents a desirable account of the family members among people and animals. It increases far-reaching questions about the philosophy, heritage and politics of animal rights.
