The horse-human relationship: rediscovering horses
Jose and Francesco De Giorgio suggest a way forward in our coexistence with horses and other non-human animals
Humans traditionally regard ourselves as more important than other species. Without even thinking about it, we tend to rank non-human animals in terms of how useful they are to us as food, entertainment or muscle power. But where does this anthropocentric paradigm leave those of us who are hoping to form bonds of friendship with members of other species? Can we change our ways and how might our life with non-human animals look in the future if we do?
Jose and Francesco De Giorgio are in the business of liberating animals, including humans. Their philosophy might rattle your cage. Perhaps even enough to leave the door wide open.
