Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

These 18 essays by experts from a variety of disciplines examine, evaluate, analyze, and admire the motives of cats and their effect upon people. Focusing on companionship, feline aesthetics and ethics, feline minds, and the metaphysics of cats, essays describe wisdom, the transmission of knowledge, nonverbal friendship, the intellectually and non-intellectually beautiful, the aesthetics of the everyday, health care as a mutual activity, kindness, obligation, rationality, self-awareness, faith and belief, the afterlife, the impulse to clone, and the power of preference. Readers might not find out whether their cats are Platonic or Aristotelian, but they will learn the basics of many schools of philosophy.

Synopsis:

What ethical obligations do people have to cats? Are cats more rational than humans? What can cats teach humans about evolutionary psychology? In this fascinating collection of articles, 18 philosophers try to answer these questions and more as they explore the majesty, mystique, and mystery of the cat. They reveal surprising insights into the feline mind and world and offer delightful anecdotes of cats they have known.
