Michela de Montaigne miłość do zwierząt i pogarda dla człowieka
MICHEL DE MONTAIGNE’S LOVE OF ANIMALS AND CONTEMPT FOR HUMANS
Languages of publication
Michel de Montaigne argues in his Essays that animals are not as different from human beings as we are inclined to think. The only thing which distinguishes humans from animals is, in fact, the human ability to perform evil deeds. This article is an attempt to demonstrate that the basis of Montaigne’s view is his disregard or even contempt for humans, which leads to the exaltation of animals.
