Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard to Think Straight about Animals (Compact Disc)
With Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard to Think Straight About Animals, Hal Herzog delivers provocative popular science at its witty, 'gee-whiz' best. With headings such as "Feeding Kittens to Boa Constrictors" this book challenges the reader to think through the knotty ethics of human interactions with other animal species. While it might make you squirm, you'll have fun reading this informal, often-humorous survey of the emerging, interdisciplinary field of anthrozoolgy. Like Malcolm Gladwell, Herzog blends scientific abstracts with anecdotes to form a compelling narrative.— Chris
A fascinating, thoughtful, and thoroughly enjoyable exploration of a major dimension of human experience.-- Steven Pinker, author of How the Mind Works
A maverick scientist reveals the inconsistent and often paradoxical ways humans think, feel, and behave towards animals in this engaging, informative, and though-provoking book, now newly revised.
Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat is a highly entertaining and illuminating journey through the full spectrum of human-animal relations. Drawing on his groundbreaking research in the field of anthrozoology, Dr. Hal Herzog tries to make sense of our complex relationships with animals and the challenging moral conundrums we face regarding these creatures who share our world--and some, our homes.
A blend of anthropology, behavioral economics, evolutionary psychology, and philosophy, updated to reflect evolving attitudes and the most recent findings, Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat is a poignant, often challenging, and frequently laugh-out-loud funny trip through a world of animal rights activists, cockfighters, professional dog-show handlers, veterinary students, biomedical researchers, and more. It will forever change the way we think about other living creatures and, ultimately, how we see ourselves.
