Between Force and Freedom: Place, Space, and Animals-as-Pet-Commodities

Zoei Sutton, Nik Taylor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


It is through the prevention of motion that space enters history. . . .
Even the symbolic definition of space relies ultimately on the potential
presence of force. . . . The history of the prevention of motion is
therefore a history of force upon bodies: a history of violence and pain.
... The history of violence and pain crosses species. (Reviel Netz 2004,
pp. xi-xiii)
