The philosopher's dog
Gaita, Raimond. (2002) The philosopher's dog Text Publishing.
How do animals think and feel? Is it mistaken to attribute to them the concepts of love, devotion, grief; even dignity? How can we understand our conception of such things, and what do our relations with animals say about our own humanity? In this much-loved book, Raimond Gaita investigates such questions through stories of animals he has known and loved, and through the reflections of others. The Philospher's Dog is moving, sometimes funny and always thought provoking.
