Your daily ravens

Timeline photos 12/24/2018

The other day, my wife and I saw an entire flock of ravens on a bank of the Hudson near Peekskill. It was a very windy day, and they would ride the upward drafts, and then plunge downward, engaging in aerial acrobatics as they fell. Some were in couples, while others were by themselves, but all were playful. This reminds me a bit of them.

'Sacred' raven inspires myths, legends 01/09/2017

This contains some interesting information, but it uncritically repeats the fakelore about the ravens at the Tower of London being domesticated by Charles II.

'Sacred' raven inspires myths, legends Since time immemorial, the raven has had a special place in the hearts and minds of humanity.

The Animals and Human Society course is in the catalog at State University of Illinois at Springfield in the fall semester for the first time in over a year. Those of you who have taken the course in the past and enjoyed it are encouraged to recommend it to your friends.

I am happy to announce that the "Animals and Human Society" course will run again next fall at the State University of Illinois at Springfield. As you may possibly know, it won a national award form the Center for Respect for Life and the Environment in 2007 as "the best new course." For a few years, it was so popular that three sections would fill up almost instantly, but when it was changed from an interdisciplinary course to a philosophy one, it was impossible to get sufficient interest to run it every semester. It has not run for about a year or more, so I am delighted that, at least for a while, it is back.

This forum was originally started in large part so that students who had taken this course might continue their discussions or perhaps begin new ones. This is an invitation to all of them to revisit some of the questions that were discussed or simply to offer whatever reflections they are moved to share.

Are plants intelligent? New book says yes Jeremy Hance: A new book, Brilliant Green, argues that not only are plants intelligent and sentient, but that we should consider their rights, especially in the midst of the Sixth Mass Extinction.

Hi! This site was started in large part as a place where those who had taken the Animals in Human Society course at State University of Illinois at Springfield could stay in touch. You are all more than welcome to post here and let others know what you have been doing. Looking back, do you have any thoughts about the course? Have the things we studied proved useful?

Konrad Lorenz and the Mythology and Science 06/16/2015

This was written a decade ago, and, while I still agree with the conclusions, I might express them differently today. I am no longer immersed in the material. The topic that continues to preoccupy me, however, is the way we edit, censor, and mythologize the past, especially traumatic episodes such as the Third Reich. I would be especially interest on any thoughts you might have on that larger theme.

The Primordial Alliance of Sheep, Man and Dog: Thoughts on the Year of the Ram 02/21/2015

Happy Year of the Ram, everyone! (It is also called the "year of the sheep," "year of the goat," and "year of the deer.") Linda and I will go to Manhattan's Chinatown this weekend, to see the dancing rams, dragons, lions, and unicorns.

The Primordial Alliance of Sheep, Man and Dog: Thoughts on the Year of the Ram The occasion of this article -- the beginning of the Year of the Ram. The placement of the ram in the Chinese zodiac reflects not only the cooperative disposition of domestic sheep, but also the agility, balance and sagacity of wild ones....

This article contains some rather profound insights into human-animal relations. Like, for example, the Victorians, we have many contradictory attitudes towards predators. There is no shame in being confused, but the first step in addressing any problem is being honest with yourself about it, and, in my opinion, we are not very honest about this one. The Victorians were a good deal more so.
