ABSTRACT

On Thursday, November 21, 2013, for the occasion of the Festival "Mode d'Emploi" (A Festival of Ideas), a round table will take place in Lyon (France) which will tackle the topic of “The Animal Point of View” (=Le Point de vue Animal). It deals with moving the center of the typically anthropocentric question which philosophy, ethology, and biology have been insisting: animals live, see, feel. The Law as such recognizes them under the title of “sentient beings”.

The participants will be: Éric Baratay (Historian, Professor from the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3), Vinciane Despret (Psychologist, Doctor of Philosophy, Specialist in ethology), Teresa Giménez-Candela (Full Professor of Law, Creator and Director of the Master in Animal Law and Society of the UAB), Nicholas Mathevon (Biologist, Specialist in animal behavior, Professor from the Université Jean Monnet de Saint Étienne). The moderator will be a journalist from “France Culture”, Stéphane Deligeorges.
