Political fraternity with animals? Towards an interspecific justice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


© 2018 Universidad de Murcia Servicio de Publicaciones. All right reserved. In this paper three reasons will be given in order to defend a political fraternity with animals. First, animals will be considered as members of the same oppressed social class like humans during capitalist development. Second, the concept of citizenship will be analyzed refining its political participation feature and highlighting the trait of sharing a common space. Third, an organic and ecological dynamism will be introduced in the space of coexistence. Finally, through a relativization of the concept of vulnerability, it will be concluded that our political relationship with animals should not be always paternalistic, hospitable or solidary, but also fraternal.
