Filmic Warfare Over Animals: Winning Weapons of the Trade
MetadataShow full metadata
This study compares The Animals Film with the rhetorical framework for the animal rights movement, as illustrated in such works as the Bible, Aristotle's Conception of the Soul by E.E. Spicer, The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, Animal Liberation by Peter Singer, Animal Revolution: Changing Attitudes Towards Speciesism by Richard Ryder, and A Stroll Through the Environments of Animals and Humans by Jakob von Uexkull. Rhetoric, didacticism, ethics, and aestheticism have all taken their place in our evolving understanding of animals and humans' relationship to the fellow beings they classify as "animals."
