The Situationality of Human-Animal Relations

Perspectives from Anthropology and Philosophy

Edited by Thiemo Breyer and Thomas Widlok

Transcript-Verlag

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 Garry Marvin, 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.
