Pick identifies the "animal" within all humans, emphasizing the corporeal and its issues of power and freedom. In her creaturely view, powerlessness is the point at which both aesthetic and ethical thinking must begin.

With its compelling account of an ethics based on attentiveness and responsiveness to the vulnerability of animal beings, Pick's important book will help to steer discussions in animal ethics and animals studies in new and productive directions.
