  10. Animals and the limits of ethnography

    | Contributor(s):: Madden, R.

    Is ethnography (as constituted in the social sciences) a reliable method with which to understand interspecies intersubjectivity? Can a method that has become a cornerstone approach to a qualitative understanding of humans for more than a century interrogate the social ties between humans and...

  11. Animals do have an interest in liberty

    | Contributor(s):: Giroux, V.

    According to Alasdair Cochrane, liberty can have value for most animals only because it allows them to obtain other desirable things, such as well-being. With this he concludes that humans can continue to use other animals as long as they treat them well. In this article, I reject this conclusion...

  13. Animals' emotions: studies in sheep using appraisal theories

    | Contributor(s):: Veissier, I., Boissy, A., Desire, L., Greiveldinger, L.

    Animal welfare concerns stem from recognition of the fact that animals can experience emotions such as pain or joy. Nevertheless, discussion of animal emotions is often considered anthropomorphic, and there is a clear need to use explanatory frameworks to understand animals' emotions. We borrowed...

    | Contributor(s):: Wimberger, K., Downs, C. T.

    | Contributor(s):: Bahlig-Pieren, Z., Turner, D. C.

    Unlike ethologists and veterinarians, lay people supposedly use their own unstructured observations to interpret their companion animals' behavior, often in anthropomorphic terms. Recently, anthropomorphism has evoked new interest amongst scientists as a result of provocative publications...

  17. Anthropomorphism and anthropocentrism as influences in the quality of life of companion animals

    | Contributor(s):: Bradshaw, J. W. S., Casey, R. A.

    Since animal minds are private, so their perception of their own quality of life (QoL) must be also. Anthropocentrism, the interpretation of reality exclusively in terms of human values and experience, has to be guarded against in any assessment of animal welfare; for domestic pets,...
