內容簡介

Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard to Think Straight About Animals

  哈爾.賀札格為我們與動物關係所做的貢獻,就像《雜食者的兩難》(The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals)的作者麥可.波倫(Michael Pollan)為我們與食物的關係所做的貢獻一樣。在以風趣、老練、引人入勝的手法呈現尖端科技研究和真實世界面貌的同時,賀札格讓讀者明白看見我們所擁有與動物之間的關係,可能在前一分鐘還很理性,但瞬間轉變為充滿矛盾且錯綜複雜。這本書讀來很有趣,無論你現在相信什麼,它將改變你的想法。

-德州大學心理學家山姆.賈斯林(Sam Gosling)

  為什麼狗是寵物?豬是食物?
  什麼原因影響人類無法對各種動物一視同仁?
  為什麼我們將對動物的愛反映在貪得無厭的肉食上?
  同樣是瀕臨絕種的動物,熊貓為何比娃娃魚受到更多關注?
  虐待動物的兒童,長大後會變成暴力分子?
  將海豚用來治療自閉症患者,是否合乎道德?
  把心愛的寵物囚禁在自己家中是對的嗎?
  將在收容所等著安樂死的流浪貓,去餵食動物園的蟒蛇,便可避免更多人工繁殖的老鼠,這樣的做法是否合理?

  本書作者為以上問題提供了最令人驚訝的解答,帶領讀者透視人類之於動物的矛盾情感。他以自身經驗,探討存在你我心底的既定刻板印象,並藉由高娛樂性和啟發性的故事,呈現動物與人類關係的光譜差異。

  Does living with a pet really make people happier and healthier? What can we learn from biomedical research with mice? Who enjoys a better quality of life — the chicken destined for your dinner plate or the rooster in a Saturday night cockfight? Why is it wrong to eat the family dog?

  Drawing on more than two decades of research into the emerging field of anthrozoology, the science of human–animal relations, Hal Herzog offers an illuminating exploration of the fierce moral conundrums we face every day regarding the creatures with whom we share our world. Alternately poignant, challenging, and laugh-out-loud funny-blending anthropology, behavioral economics, evolutionary psychology, and philosophy — this enlightening and provocative book will forever change the way we look at our relationships with other creatures and, ultimately, how we see ourselves.

  ★本書中譯版《為什麼狗是寵物?豬是食物?:人類與動物之間的道德難題》由遠足文化出版。
