Animals in the Wild

  • Keekok Lee

Abstract

This book in the main is an attempt to make explicit the presuppositions and tease out the implications of the zoological conception of what counts as an animal, in order to clarify the ontological difference between wild animals on the one hand and zoo animals on the other. This chapter begins the task by looking in greater detail at animals in the wild in order to characterise their ontological status before turning attention in the chapters that follow to determining in turn the ontological status of animals in zoos; it is a fundamental contention of this book that the former is the ontological foil to the latter, a point which will become clear as the arguments unfold.
