On her book Animal Lessons: How They Teach Us to Be Human

Cover Interview of January 19, 2010

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Oppression, slavery, and torture are historically inseparable from the question of the animal.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Our inhumanity to man is both physically and conceptually a direct result of our abuse of animals.”

On the second:

“Since we need to eat, a more ethical way to eat others might be to eat only what we need and not more.”
