Sample text

Humanity is held as the yardstick against which all other animals are considered, and their similarity, difference, and significance to us is what is seen as important. That is to say, animals are perceived as having extrinsic as opposed to intrinsic importance—they matter only when they are important to us as opposed to simply being important in their own right. In this way then we construct a hierarchy of animal importance—pets at the top; meat and farm animals somewhere in the middle; and fish, reptiles, and amphibians somewhere near the bottom.

The chapter concludes with a consideration of the real-world effects the media can have on our attitudes toward animals through a discussion of the moral panics surrounding the United Kingdom's “Dangerous Dogs” list. Chapter four, “Working with/for Animals,” introduces the various ways researchers have investigated the actual places and life worlds of those who regularly work with animals. This is done through a discussion of the research into human–animal relations in animal shelters, laboratories where animals are used, slaughterhouses, and veterinary surgeries.

There is every reason to think that animals play an equally important symbolic role in the lives of people. . The intellectual mandate of sociology—to understand the relationship between private experience and the wider society—positions it perfectly to examine this role (Arluke and Sanders 1996, pp. 2–3). One possible explanation for the fact that human–animal interaction has been ignored by the social sciences is that there has been a tendency to “write out” animals. g. Adams and Donovan 1995; Birke 1994; Collard and Contrucci 1988).
