Thinking in Animals...

"[T]he notion of a comfortable, utopian conception of nature in which humans have unmediated access to animals and live in some kind of unproblematic harmony with them does not look like a practical way forward, either in terms of how one thinks philosophically about animals, or in terms of how, on a practical level, one might work for the improvement of their living conditions."
