This book offers a unique interdisciplinary challenge to assumptions about animals and animality deeply embedded in our own ways of thought, and at the same time exposes highly sensitive and largely unexplored aspects of the understanding of our common humanity.

Timothy Ingold is a professor at the University of Manchester.Review:
." . . edited in masterly fashion."
." . . shows us how deep rooted and diverse are our ideas about how to define and classify animals."
""What is an Animal? will interest the general reader who is looking for a thorough review of current thinking on the subject of human/animal differences, similarities, and relationships. The book would also be appropriate for graduate seminars in anthropology, biology, philosophy, and the humanities concerned with animal and human evolution, the manner in which humans have conceptualized animals, what it means to be human, and the ethical treatment of animals."
