September 4, 2023

Is an animal that has been shown to be intelligent, have a sense of self and is also empathetic a “thing” or it a “non-human person”?  That is the thorny and important legal and philosophical question that is the basis for graphic history THING: INSIDE THE STRUGGLE FOR ANIMAL PERSONHOOD. Writers and artists SAMUEL MACHADO and CYNTHIA SOUSA MACHADO are cartoonists whose work explores politics, law, liberty, identity, rights and social justice themes and they are our guests on this episode of Inquiry.
