Wolves and Humans

Jean Kazez has an interesting post up at the Talking Philosophy blog, where she writes about two books covering the subject of what it is to be human. The more interesting of the two seems to be Mark Rowlands’ The Philosopher and the Wolf.
 
Because of the fact that we share the house with our dog, Kai, my choice of books for Martin this Christmas had a bit of a theme going about dogs and their owners. So I had chosen books such as Walking With Zeke, Dog Years and Paws and Reflect. From Kazez’s post, it sounds as though I should be adding The Philosopher and the Wolf to that list. 

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    I’ve read the summary of The Philosopher and the Wolf on Amazon and it sounds like a very interesting book. It’s not released in Auckland, New Zealand yet. I will keep my eye out for it. Thanks for the post.

    Hi, Waimon. Glad to give you the recommendation. I’ve not got it yet myself, but I hope to get around to it this year. The trouble is that my pile of as-yet-unread books is growing exponentially, and I really need to get my book-buying addiction under control…

    yes, i know what you mean. i have the same problem – my book pile keeps building and i have only read one book in the last 4 months! i just don’t have time to read books like i use to, which is a shame cos i love reading. working with computers all day, my eyes are a bit "stuffed" most of the time to read books. guess i will get to them when i retire. – wai
