Pets, People, and Pragmatism

Erin McKenna

A Fordham University Press Publication

American Philosophy (FUP)

  • Animal studies is one of the fastest-growing fields in the humanities. This is the first book-length book to bring the insights of Pragmatist philosophy together with questions about human-animal relations.It thereby expands upon the author's earlier edited collection, Animal Pragmatism.
  • Its major chapters deal with dogs, cats, and horses as pragmatic examples of the animals with whom humans have developed closest bonds.
  • The author has been at pains to make the style accessible to general readers, who stand to learn from the book something practical about dealing with dogs, cats, or horses
