Animals, Ethics and Us
A Veterinary’s View of Human-Animal Interactions
By  Madeleine Campbell
 
Everyone has a view about animal ethics but very few of us stop to wonder about the basis of our views, or to rationalize them. Drawing on her experience as a veterinarian, a researcher, and more, the author takes ethical argument beyond academia and applies it to the question which currently dominates societal debate about human-animal interactions: what (if anything) is a reasonable use of an animal?

The Wall and the Arcade
Walter Benjamin’s Metaphysics of Translation and its Affiliates
By  Shimon Sanbank
 
The book centers on Walter Benjamin's revolutionary essay 'The Translator's Task' (1923) which subverts some widespread assumptions concerning translation: that it serves for communication, that it transfers meaning, that it must not distort the translator's own language, and that it is inferior to the original. Benjamin overturns these assumptions by replacing the concept of translation as a merely linguistic operation with a metaphysical—or theological—concept of the same, derived from Jewish Kabbala and French Symbolisme.
