About this product
- DescriptionWhen Species Meet is a breathtaking meditation on the intersection between humankind and dog, philosophy and science, and macro and micro cultures. Cameron Woo, Publisher of Bark magazineIn 2006, about 69 million U.S. households had pets, giving homes to around 73.9 million dogs, 90.5 million cats, and 16.6 million birds, and spending over $38 billion dollars on companion animals. As never before in history, our pets are truly members of the family. But the tion of companion species ktted from human beings, animals and other organisms, landscapes, and techlogies includes much more than companion animals. In When Species Meet, Donna J. Haraway digs into this larger phemen to contemplate the interactions of humans with many kinds of critters, especially with those called domestic. At the heart of the book are her experiences in agility training with her dogs Cayenne and Roland, but Haraway s vision here also encompasses wolves, chickens, cats, baboons, sheep, microorganisms, and whales wearing video cameras. From designer pets to lab animals to trained therapy dogs, she deftly explores philosophical, cultural, and biological aspects of animal-human encounters.In this deeply personal yet intellectually groundbreaking work, Haraway develops the idea of companion species, those who meet and break bread together but t without some indigestion. A great deal is at stake in such meetings, she writes, and outcomes are t guaranteed. There is assured happy or unhappy ending socially, ecologically, or scientifically. There is only the chance for getting on together with some grace. Ultimately, she finds that respect, curiosity, and kwledge spring from animal-human associations and work powerfully against ideas about human exceptionalism.One of the founders of the posthumanities, Donna J. Haraway is professor in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Author of many books and widely read essays, including The Companion Species Manifesto: Dogs, People, and Significant Otherness and the w-classic essay The Cyborg Manifesto, she received the J. D. Bernal Prize in 2000, a lifetime achievement award from the Society for Social Studies in Science.
