Summary

Explores how humans and wildlife such as wolves can cohabit with mutual respect in the same territories.

Starting from a specific case, the spontaneous return of wolves to France and the intense conflicts that event has triggered, the French philosopher Baptiste Morizot invites us to think about what he calls "diplomacy with living beings." How can we conceive of cohabitation with the most recalcitrant wildlife, large predators in particular, and what concrete solutions need to be invented to make this happen? Drawing on knowledge gleaned from history and philosophy as well as from ethology, scientific ecology, and biology, Wild Diplomacy prompts us to ask what relations we want to reinvent with living beings today and how we might fundamentally reimagine our status as living beings among other life forms. This prize-winning book has broken new ground in contemporary French environmental philosophy.

Baptiste Morizot is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Aix-Marseille in France. His many books include On the Animal Trail. Catherine Porter is Visiting Scholar at the Society for the Humanities at Cornell University.
