Being humans when we are animals
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Centre for Gender Research. (Humanimal group)
2014 (English)In: Nordic Wittgenstein Review, ISSN 2194-6825, E-ISSN 2242-248X, ISSN 2242-248X, Vol. 3, no 2, 125-149 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper investigates forms of metaphysical vertigo that can appear when contrasts between humans and animals are challenged. Distinguishing three forms of vertigo and four ways of differentiating humans and animals, the paper attempts to achieve a perspicuous representation of what could be termed “the difficulty of being humans when we are animals”; or alternatively, “the difficulty of being animals when we are humans”.
