While writing a chapter on contemporary animal rights for an ethics book, philosophy professor James Brusseau began asking how the animal studies could reflect back to reveal human truths. Dignity, Pleasures, Vulgarity pursues that question as it ranges from an accessible look at today's philosophy of animal ethics, to an investigation of what we can learn about ourselves in the midst of thinking about animals.

Set against the backdrop of the wine, sex, love, and blood soaked running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, this short and compelling narrative nonfiction explores how animals – human and nonhuman – exist together.
