Florian  Werner - The Wisdom of the Guillemot


30 instructive and comical observations

Can jellyfish explain the structure of the universe to us? What does the common guillemot know about Kierkegaard's Leap into Faith? Can kangaroos help us to understand Jean-Jacques Rousseau? And is the courage of male lions the result of them sleeping so much?

In 30 philosophical observations, Florian Werner examines the question of how much we can learn from animals. The amazing result: ox, ass and guillemot know far more about questions of morality, society, politics and a good life than we would ever have thought possible. If we want to understand human beings we have to ask animals.
