The Inhumanities

Weekly Roundup – October 18, 2009

with one comment

Our apologies for so few links this week–we’ve all been really busy:

  • Justin E.H. Smith at 3 Quarks Daily on “Ecce Cannis: Towards a Philosophical History of Dogs
  • The law school vegan debacle continues, this time with a new poll surveying reasons for becoming vegan and Gary Francione weighs in on the meaning of being vegan
  • A review of Daniel C. Beaver’s (the name is wonderful) Hunting and Politics of Violence Before the English Civil War
  • An excerpt from Jonathan Safran Foer’s forthcoming Eating Animals
  • Agribusiness blocks a Michael Pollan lecture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (and a short piece by Pollan in the New Times Magazine, “Rules to Eat By”)
  • And J Rodolfo at Posthumanities on origami chickens in McDonald’s advertising
