Carol J. Adams, feminist-vegan activist and writer


Carol J. Adams, feminist-vegan activist and writer, has just published a revised edition of her important book, The Politics of Meat. She makes a compelling argument for reassessing the relationship between feminism and respect for animals. She has an excellent webpage that is worth exploring, http://caroljadams.blogspot.com/.

In my study of the natural environment at the NC Arboretum, I am coming to accept the importance of the subjectivity of nature. This is especially evident with wild animals who live their own dramatic lives without reference to human beings. And it is also true of plants and inorganic objects, according to Whitehead’s Process Philosophy.

What would it mean to live as if the natural world has its own subjectivities and that humans must live with respect and openness to these “Others?”
