Knowledge obtains meaning only when combined with action. With science's recognition that humans and other animals share comparable minds and emotions, we are compelled to translate this knowledge to ethics and everyday living. We call this lived experience trans-species living. Every month we feature an example of people and animals living together that illustrates trans-species living.
The Kerulos Trans-species Living: Insights feature explores the unfolding of this exciting new world where animal and human social justice intersect. Through video clips and interviews, we learn about the challenges and choices that individuals face as they craft lives in partnership with animal kin. The journey into this new culture raises many questions, some controversial. Trans-species Living: Insights provides space for reflective dialogue to ethically serve animals and humans.
Please contact us if you have a specific question or topic you would like us to feature and explore.
Goethe wrote, Knowledge without action is meaningless. This philosophy is core to The Kerulos Center mission. Recognizing animal sentience only makes a difference to animals if this understanding is translated into concrete action.
However, sometimes we encounter contradictions.
During the shift to a trans-species paradigm, we must contend with the legacy of the human society in which we still live. Trans-species Living: Paraducks explores such conflicts in people's lives and how they are able, or not, to resolve these difficult ethical paradoxes.
