    I believe that the disciplines of animal training come to us in the form they do because deep in human beings is the impulse to perform Adam s task, to name animals and people as well, and to name them in such a way that the grammar is flexible enough to do two things One is to make names that give the soul room for expansion My talk of the change from utterances such as Belle, Sit to Belle, Go fi

    The only writer on animals I know of who combines a decades of experience training horses and dogs, with b a robust acquaintance with Wittgenstein And she can write, too.

    I really struggled with rating this book settling on a 2.5 rounded up because my reaction to this book vacillated so wildly The writing veers from beautifully evocative to philosophical rambling that borders on incoherence I can appreciate the linguistic nuance Hearne tries to pin down about animal comprehension and motivation, but a lot of her methodologies made me recoil For every eurekaflash of insigh

  4. Paul Paul says:

    Hearne was a marvelous poet, an amateur philosopher, and on the evidence of this book a superb animal trainer It belongs on that short shelf of indispensable books about the nature of animals and the necessity for human straight talk and right thinking when working with them.

    This is an excellent book It is about loving animals, but NOT in a cute widdle wooda wooda way More in the sense of recognizing them as living beings File under animal and human cognition, psychology, and philosophy and maaaaybe animal training after that but while it gives some excellent advice, this is in no way a how to manual.In fact the only reason I didn t give this book 5 stars is that I have absolutely

    Hearne intertwines her knowledge of horse and dog training with philosophical insights into the nature of our relationships with animals Some of her literary philosophical references were over my head, and her writing style was a bit convoluted at times, but overall I enjoyed her perspective on animal consciousness, language, and morality Hearne is an intelligent and thoughtful writer, a poet and academic who arg

    This book well, actually just the author was recommended to me about 10 years ago in grad school The topic was very vaguely related to my thesis but enough so for me to drop everything and read it on the spot, so I saved it to read when I had the time.Unfortunately, I found the author s ideas to be woefully out of date and old fashioned She advocates correcting dogs with a commanding, authoritative yank on the leash

  8. Karen Karen says:

    I despised the writing in this book I was tempted to stop many times when the inane, incomprehensible, philosophical babbling got too much but then there would be an actual animal training story that would catch my interest and I would labor on Hearne had some interesting things to say but would always write it in the most academic and confusing way possible She also constantly throws in random literary references in a

  9. Kali Kali says:

    This is one of my favorite books of all time Hearne s observations on the importance of coherence to the sanity of animals and humans rang immediately true to me, as did the complexity of navigating between the academic, intellectual world and the pragmatic world of those who work, day to day, with companion animals Some feel the book is too philosophical, but it s a philosophy book, and Hearne was a leading Wittgenstein

  10. Boria Sax Boria Sax says:

    Difference without superiority is a difficult thing for many people to conceive of, but that is how Hearne sees our relations with animals As a species, we are alienated, and animal training is a way to connect with other creatures, and the precise moves they execute are a measure of our success It is a bold thesis, one about which she is understandably defensive, but which she argues well The writing style idiosyncratically
