This week I started on another article--working through a backlog here--on Burke and nonhuman animals. To this end, I have reread a bunch of Burke, taking notes whenever animals pop up. So far in Permanence and Change, I have made notes about chickens, a trout, grasshoppers, an eagle, horses, birds (more generally), a fox, a lion, a lamb, a cow, mosquitoes, apes, termites, a rabbit, and an old hen. Oh, and lots of dogs, including Schopenhauer barking like one.
