Download and read online The Animal in Ottoman Egypt in PDF and EPUB Animals in Ottoman Egypt examines the multiple changing relationships between humans and animals in a place that affords perhaps the longest documentary record of the human-animal relationship. Egypt was home to the world's first zoo (circa 2500 BCE), one of the oldest religions to incorporateanimal forms, and perhaps the first domesticated dogs. During the crucial centuries of Ottoman rule in Egypt between 1517 and 1882, the changing relationships between humans and animals were central to the transformation of Egypt from an early modern society fully ensconced in an Ottoman imperialsystem of rule to a nineteenth-century centralizing state. Egypt in this period transitioned from being an early modern world characterized primarily by intense human-animal interactions to being one in which this relationship was no longer the basis of commercial and social life. The results ofthis transition were a fundamental reordering of political, economic, social, and ecological power. This book thus seeks to explain one of the most important historical transitions of the last 500 years through the story of changes to one of the most historically significant of human relationships -those with other animals.This history also makes evident how what happened to animals in Ottoman Egypt would eventually happen to certain kinds of humans. Just as livestock, dogs, and elephants were stripped of their constructive social and economic functions in the early nineteenth century, so too were Egyptian peasants,the uneducated, the disabled, the poor, the sick, the criminal, and the itinerant cut out of the productive social and economic realms of Egypt later in the century. As their animal counterparts were confined in veterinary holding pens and the zoo, these humans would be subjected to similarnineteenth-century projects of enclosure - the prison, asylum, conscription camp, hospital, and school. As the social became more strictly, vigorously, and narrowly defined, fewer living human and nonhuman beings were given access to it and its borders came to be more intensely defended throughviolence, coercion, and discipline. Thus, Ottoman Egypt's transition to modernity was a wrenching and painful experience for most animals and humans alike. The story of what happened to the animal in Ottoman Egypt is also the story of what happened to the human - a story of the animal in all ofus.

Download and read online Ich sehe die Welt wie ein frohes Tier in PDF and EPUB Nur einer hochbegabten Autistin wie Temple Grandin konnte es gelingen, das Verhalten von Tieren so genau zu beobachten und zu analysieren, dass sie mehr über sie verstand als die meisten anderen Menschen. Denn Tiere sind uns ähnlich, viel mehr, als wir bislang dachten. Temple Grandin gehört zu den wenigen Autisten, denen es gelang, sich die Welt der Sprache zunutze zu machen, um ihre Welt der Farben, Bilder und Filme anderen zugänglich zu machen. Sie machte eine beispiellose Karriere und gilt heute als eine der weltweit bedeutendsten Tierpsychologinnen. Denn sie kann die Welt so sehen, wie es Tiere tun. Und deshalb kann sie das Verhalten, die Begabungen und Ängste von Tieren verstehen und so den Umgang mit ihnen verbessern helfen. Immer wieder findet Temple Grandin bestätigt, wie sehr ihre eigene Wahrnehmung derjenigen von Tieren ähnelt. In ihrem Bewusstsein und ihrem Gedächtnis sind nur Bilder, die sie für die Außenwelt in Worte übersetzt. Und sie kann Gedanken und Gefühle von Tieren in unsere Sprache übersetzen. Damit revolutioniert sie unser Verständnis von Tieren.

Download and read online Tiere essen in PDF and EPUB »Ich liebe Würste auch, aber ich esse sie nicht.« Jonathan Safran Foer in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung »Tiere essen« ist ein leidenschaftliches Buch über die Frage, was wir essen und warum. Der hoch gelobte amerikanische Romancier und Bestsellerautor Jonathan Safran Foer hat ein aufrüttelndes Buch über Fleischkonsum und dessen Folgen geschrieben, das weltweit Furore macht und bei uns mit Spannung erwartet wird. Wie viele junge Menschen schwankte Jonathan Safran Foer lange zwischen Fleischgenuss und Vegetarismus hin und her. Als er Vater wurde und er und seine Frau überlegten, wie sie ihr Kind ernähren würden, bekamen seine Fragen eine neue Dringlichkeit: Warum essen wir Tiere? Würden wir sie auch essen, wenn wir wüssten, wo sie herkommen? Foer stürzt sich mit Leib und Seele in sein Thema. Er recherchiert auf eigene Faust, bricht nachts in Tierfarmen ein, konsultiert einschlägige Studien und spricht mit zahlreichen Akteuren und Experten. Vor allem aber geht er der Frage auf den Grund, was Essen für den Menschen bedeutet. Auch Foer kennt die trostspendende Kraft einer fleischhaltigen Lieblingsmahlzeit, die seit Generationen in einer Familie gekocht wird. In einer brillanten Synthese aus Philosophie, Literatur, Wissenschaft und eigenen Undercover-Reportagen bricht Foer in »Tiere essen« eine Lanze für eine bewusste Wahl. Er hinterfragt die Geschichten, die wir uns selbst erzählen, um unser Essverhalten zu rechtfertigen, und die dazu beitragen, dass wir der Wirklichkeit der Massentierhaltung und deren Konsequenzen nicht ins Auge sehen. »Tiere essen« besticht durch eine elegante Sprache, überraschende Denkfiguren und viel Humor. Foer zeigt ein großes Herz für menschliche Schwächen, lässt sich aber in seinem leidenschaftlichen Plädoyer für die Möglichkeiten ethischen Handelns nicht bremsen. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden Menschen, der über sich und die Welt – und seinen Platz in ihr – nachdenkt. Mit einem eigens für die deutsche Ausgabe geschriebenen Vorwort von Jonathan Safran Foer. »Diese Geschichte begann nicht als ein Buch. Ich wollte nur wissen – für mich und für meine Familie – was Fleisch eigentlich ist. Wo kommt es her? Wie wird es produziert? Welche Folgen hat unser Fleischkonsum für die Wirtschaft, die Gesellschaft und unsere Umwelt? Gibt es Tiere, die man bedenkenlos essen kann? Gibt es Situationen, in denen der Verzicht auf Fleisch falsch ist? Warum essen wir kein Hundefleisch? Was als persönliche Untersuchung begann, wurde rasch sehr viel mehr als das ...« Jonathan Safran Foer Der Titel enthält eine vom Vegetarierbund Deutschlands (VEBU) zusammengestellte Übersicht zur Sachlage der Massentierhaltung in der Bundesrepublik.
