Product Description


This fascinating collection of essays is oftenchallenging and always engaging.Drawingon an astonishing breadth of approaches this book offers a stimulatingexploration of what it means to be both embodied human and animal in anincreasingly post-human world.
From the opening chapter with its provocative idea ofhanding animals tools for their own, much needed, revolution through to thefinal chapter which unsettlingly forces the reader to considerhuman-technological melding, this book will force to you see – and think aboutthe world – differently.
(Sanford Lakoff)

The chapters in this incisive collection offer important challenges to anthropocentric prejudices – just as the title promises, readers are taken “beyond human.” Vivid, passionate, ethically-charged critical writing embodies resistance to fixed ideas that diminish other animals. Boundaries are contested and conventions are transgressed as these writers celebrate a consciousness that displaces man as the measure of all things. This memorable and important compilation of scholarship creatively advances the agenda of human-animal studies. (Sanford Lakoff)
