Die Weisheit der Tiere. Konzepte paganer Philosophen zur Frage der Rationalität und Spiritualität der Tiere

Wyss, Beatrice

Abstract

Are animals rational beings? This question was tackled in philosophy and literature in antiquity. Examples of rational behaviour of animals are known by the Physiologus and pagan authors and philosophers. Fundamental thoughts about the relationship between humans, animals and god(s) are found in the Halkyone. This dialogue shows some structural similarities to the Physiologus.
