Leader Dr. Anne Klaeysen will host a discussion on Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard to Think Straight About Animals, by Hal Herzog.
A puppy is "a family member in Kansas, a pariah in Kenya, and lunch in Korea," according to animal behaviorist and author Hal Herzog. In this book he examines our sometimes whimsical attitudes towards animals. Research shows that the human brain is wired to think about animals and inanimate objects differently; we can also look at the same animal very differently given its context. Join other readers for a discussion about how we define--and where we limit--our empathy for animals.
