Animals in a Cage (of Languages)

Author(s): Dariusz Czaja
Subject(s): Anthropology
Published by: Instytut Sztuki Polskiej Akademii Nauk
Keywords: anthropology; animal; philosphy

Summary/Abstract: In this introduction to the current issue the author drew attention to the enrootment of the contemporary discourse about animals in assorted philosophical and world outlook languages inherited from history, arguing that there is no cognitively innocent language for talking about animals. More, D. Czaja brought to the fore the difficulties of linguistically (and not only) tackling the problem and the man-animal relation within the humanistic reflection on man. The texts presented in this issue of ”Konteksty” attempt to make the reader aware of the topicality and importance of the animal question.
