Animal Crisis with Alice Crary & Lori Gruen
Show Notes

What if the key to respecting and appreciating non-human animals resided in understanding our human selves better? Thinking about animals and our relation to them might then involve trying to grasp the ways in which our current social, economic, and moral systems skew our perceptions and practices. Prof. Alice Crary (The New School for Social Research) and Prof. Lori Gruen (Wesleyan University) delve into the fundamental questions and problems that can help us better understand the crisis affecting animals and how we might then seek resolution through a considered form of resistance.
