I have not made up my mind about Osborne’s book yet. She approaches the topic of animals in philosophy and literature from various angles (of language, reincarnations, and vegetarianism, for example) and ultimately suggests that the power of storytelling, the stories themselves, are a tool with which to change people’s minds, then and now, about the way we think about and treat animals. - SUSAN A.
