What Philosophy Can Tell You About Your Dog by Steven D. Hales

Book Description

Do humans take dogs for walks, or are the dogs taking us for a ride? This book searches for answers with the eyes of an analyst and the mind of a philosopher.This is a book for thoughtful dog-lovers who want to sniff out the deeper issues raised by dogs and their relationships with humans. Twenty philosophers and dog lovers tell us about their experiences with dogs they have known, and give us their (un-dogmatic) insights on dog-related themes of metaphysics and ethics. Questions posed include: Do dogs live in the same world that we do? Are we wrong to think our dogs have personalities and emotions? What are dogs thinking and what's the nature of canine wisdom? And, if dogs are our friends, why do we think we can have them neutered?

Relativism is one of philosophy's oldest -- and most polarizing -- concepts. It has captivated thinkers since the days of Protagoras (who supported the notion) and Plato (who did not).
