DARWIN, THE SOCIALITY COROLLARY. AND CRITICAL ANIMAL STUDIES


Carmen Dell'Aversano


UniversitÓ di Pisa, Italy

  



Abstract

This paper aims to connect PCP and Critical Animal Studies through an exploration of some usually neglected implications of Darwin’s evolutionary theory on the one hand, and of a radical constructivist position and, more specifically, of the Sociality and Construction corollaries on the other.
 
Keywords: Personal Construct Psychology, Critical Animal Studies, Darwinism
