Abstract:

The pandemic allows us to revisit a difficult question, as if we’re caught in a bind. On the one hand we recognize that we, too, are animals. On the other hand we also insist that we are superior to animals, and some would even go so far as to say that we are completely distinct from animals. Who are we then, we humans? And how do we stand in relation to animals, and therefore to the animal in us?
