A trip to the movies: Homo parasiticus and the question of sustainability
Beighton, C. 2021. A trip to the movies: Homo parasiticus and the question of sustainability.
The rational arguments in favour of more sustainable lifestyles have been made many times. So why are we not hearing that our welfare the depends on that of others? Gaston Bachelard argued in Psychoanalysis of fire (1938) that our desire to consume other animals expresses a desire for heat and life, and is immune to rational debate. Perhaps it is high time we looked elsewhere for an explanation for our insistently exploitative relationship with other species.
