Il confine permeabile: la negoziazione del confine animali-umani
de Mori, Barbara
The paper is devoted to a re-examination of the issue of the Human-Animal boundary in the light of the idea that the boundary has been renegotiated every time humans has perceived a challenge to their supremacy in the hierarchy of beings. By making reference to the Darwinian framework and also to the reflections developed by the philosopher and anthropologist Raymond Corbey in his book The Methaphysics of Apes. Negotiating the Animal-Human Boundary, the paper invites to focus the attention to the necessity of reestablishing some balance between humans and animals by doing reference to the quality of life of all living beings.
