Synopsis

Of Jews and Animals by Andrew Benjamin

By developing his own conception of the 'figure' Andrew Benjamin has written an innovative and provocative study of the complex relationship between philosophy, the history of painting and their presentation of both Jews and animals. As Benjamin makes clear the 'Other' is never abstract. He underscores the means by which the ethical imperative, arising from the way the history of philosophy and the history of art are constructed, shows us how to respond to an already identified, even if unacknowledged, determinant other.

Reviews

Of Jews and Animals is set to become a key text, alongside such works as Elisabeth de Fontenay's Le silence des betes (1998) and Jacques Derrida's The Animal That Therefore I Am (2006), in constituting a further and necessary move beyond the utilitarianism and neo-Kantianism within which 'animal philosophy
has for so long remained mired
