Reviews

"In When Animals Speak, Eva Meijer brings together years of research into a singularly revelatory text. There is much discourse these days about 'the political turn' in animal studies--such a development requires the work of Meijer to examine its own presuppositions and enabling assumptions. Her eclectic use of sources from across the philosophic spectrum is refreshing and helpful. Bravo!"--Ralph Acampora, author of Corporal Compassion: Animal Ethics and Philosophy of Body
"Our entanglements with other animals shape our politics, our ethics, and our very concepts. These relationships often dangerously impact the wellbeing of other animals. In this comprehensive and passionate exploration, Eva Meijer argues that other animals are agents in these relationships, with their own perspectives and experiences, their own sensibilities and capacities to resist misrepresentation. The task for us is to learn to listen to what they are telling us, and once we do we can work to enrich all of our lives."--Lori Gruen, author of Entangled Empathy: An Alternative Ethic for Our Relationships with Animals
