Titel der Veranstaltung:
Man Alone of Animals"? Animal Emotional in Ancient and Modern Thought.
Do other species feel love and hate, or joy and grief, or are these and other emotions experienced by “man alone of animals”? This paper examines Greco-Roman ideas on the formation and operation of the emotions in human and non-human animals, and shows how classical arguments for and against the position that other animal species are capable of experiencing true emotional states live on in current philosophical and ethological thought.
