The relationship between humans and animals has undergone a paradigm shift, caused by new technologies and discourses. In the general view, the dividing line between the human and animal mind and body has become less rigid. This volume, originating from a 2005 conference that gathered an international group of philosophers and historians of antiquity, studies the ancient views of the boundaries between humans and animals and the overcoming of these boundaries. The main focus is on the literary and illustrative conceptions representing these views. German text.

"Review - German ""The present book originated in a symposium held at the University of Rostock, Germany, in 2005. Subject is the relationship between man and animal in antiquity, a theme explored in 25 papers. Typical subjects discussed are: Plato, Aristotle, Aristophanes, and the Stoics on animals; hunting practices; animal sacrifice; animal imagery in political writings; imaginary animals; hybrid beings that combine animal and human traits; the Egyptian veneration of animals (or deities in animal form); animals in ancient art. Unfortunately, there is nothing on ancient Cynic philosophy and its suggestion that humans remain unhappy as long as they do not return to the happy existence of animals. Also lacking is an index. Nevertheless, this is a good scholarly resource, to be praised for the English abstract that accompanies each papaer.""In: International Review of Biblical Studies. 56 (2009) 10. No. 1383"
