Im 17. Jahrhundert war es höchste Zeit, dass ein Genie auftauchte und Schneisen ins Dickicht des Unwissens schlug. Isaac Newton war dieses Genie. Und ein Arschloch. Science Buster Florian Freistetter zeigt, wie intrigant und hinterhältig Newton wirklich war und dass sein Hass auf Robert Hooke und Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz keine Grenzen kannte. Gleichzeitig beweist er, dass Newton die Physik niemals revolutioniert hätte, wenn er nicht solch ein Kotzbrocken gewesen wäre. Wenn Genialität auf Streitsucht trifft – und dabei ein kosmisches Arschloch herauskommt, davon erzählt Freistetters Buch mit schonungslosem Humor.

What is the role of government in protecting animal welfare? What principles should policy makers draw on as they try to balance animal welfare against human liberty? Much has been written in recent years on our moral duties towards animals, but scholars and activists alike have neglected the important question of how far the state may go to enforce those duties. Kimberly K. Smith fills that gap by exploring how liberal political principles apply to animal welfare policy. Focusing on animal welfare in the United States, Governing Animals begins with an account of the historical relationship between animals and the development of the American liberal welfare state. It then turns to the central theoretical argument: Some animals (most prominently pets and livestock) may be considered members of the liberal social contract. That conclusion justifies limited state intervention to defend their welfare - even when such intervention may harm human citizens. Taking the analysis further, the study examines whether citizens may enjoy property rights in animals, what those rights entail, how animals may be represented in our political and legal institutions, and what strategies for reform are most compatible with liberal principles. The book takes up several policy issues along the way, from public funding of animal rescue operations to the ethics of livestock production, animal sacrifice, and animal fighting. Beyond even these specific policy questions, this book asks what sort of liberalism is suitable for the challenges of the twenty-first century. Smith argues that investigating the political morality of our treatment of animals gives us insight into how to design practices and institutions that protect the most vulnerable members of our society, thus making of our shared world a more fitting home for both humans and the nonhumans to which we are so deeply connected.

Then a series of mysterious and unexpected postcards from a school called Phillips Exeter Academy begins to arrive, flooding his plans with uncertainty and confusing his inexperienced parents as to what is best for their son. From Piglets To Prep School: Crossing A Chasm describes the unanticipated and fundamentally unwanted struggle that this young boy faces as the postcards, eventually inviting him to attend the school on scholarship, continue to interrupt a comfortably familiar existence in his home town a life of growing up in a virtual clone of Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon of Prairie Home Companion.

Als eine Bekannte den Tierfreund Steve Jenkins fragte, ob er nicht ein Minischwein adoptieren wolle, wusste Steve, dass sein Lebensgefährte Derek nicht gerade begeistert sein würde. Dennoch willigte er ein, sich des süßen kleinen Ferkels anzunehmen. Eine Entscheidung, die Dereks und sein Leben für immer verändern sollte. Denn rein gar nichts an Esther war »Mini« – in drei Jahren wurde sie zu einem ausgewachsenen Hausschwein von 335 Kilo. Doch trotz aller Schwierigkeiten und einer Menge buchstäblicher »Schweinereien« liebten die beiden Esther: nur wie sollte es in ihrer Stadtwohnung mitten in Toronto mit der tierischen WG weitergehen? Wieder fassten sie einen weitreichenden Entschluss: per Crowdfunding finanzierten sie ein Gnadenhof-Projekt für ehemalige Nutztiere. Heute leben sie mit Esther und vielen anderen tierischen Freunden auf dem Land in Ontario im Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary.
