Reviews

" Steiner has provided a needed and lucid account of the history he targets."
"--Journal of the History of Philosophy"
" Steiner has written a clear and detailed history of philosophical views of nonhuman animals. His book is unique because the perspective he brings to the history of Western philosophy is informed by the thought of Heidegger, Levinas, and Derrida. Both animal rightists and opponents to animal rights can benefit from a reading of this book."
- Daniel A. Dombrowski, Seattle University
