Our Symphony with Animals Mobi ´ 336 pages Download æ Randarenewables ☆ A leader in the fields of animal ethics and neurology Dr Aysha Akhtar examines the rich human animal connection and how interspecies empathy enriches our well beingDeftly combining medicine social history and personal experienceIn when we recognize our kinship with animals She travels around the country to tell the stories of a varied cast of characters―including a former mobster an industrial chicken farmer a Marine veteran―and comes face to face with a serial killerThrough storytelling that is entertaining profound and touching Dr Akhtar reveals what happens when we both break and forge bonds with animals She demonstrates how humans are neurologically designed to empathize with animals and how violence against them goes against our nature In eual measure the love and friendship we give to other species biologically reverberates back to us Humanity’s compassion for animals is the next step in our species I am an expert in the field of human animal bond and a researcher in the area of animals working in therapeutic contexts This book is reminiscent of many books that have come before it and in our political climate is fairly conservative in its messaging It is not a particularly relevant text except as a collection of heartwarming stories It's a pretty apolitical outdated book that doesn't have a lot to add to contemporary conversations about human animal relationships I may review this book in depth on my blog in a future post on books about animals at wwwbooksbeyondbinariesblog
