Praise

Praise for The Philospher’s Dog:

“Dog lovers endlessly philosophize about their love for their canine companions. A compelling book on the subject from an actual philosopher with the brainpower, dog love, and writing skill of Raimond Gaita is timely. Gaita understands and explores the notion that animals and our own humanity are inextricably linked. Great fodder for anybody who loves animals and ponders our complex relationships with them.”
–JON KATZ, author of A Dog Year and The New Work of Dogs 

“In everything that Raimond Gaita writes we sense a generous heart at work, as well as lucid intelligence. The Philosopher’s Dog is a book to give to the kind of person who asks what philosophy is for.”
–J. M. COETZEE, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, 2003

“Rai Gaita is a dog lover, a philosopher, and a gifted, sensitive writer. In this immensely readable and enjoyable book, he mixes the personal with the philosophical and the anecdotal with the profound to produce a series of illuminating reflections on what it means to be a creature and, more important, what it means to be fully human.”
–RAY MONK, author of Bertrand Russell
