Human Animals - Frank Hamel
This wonderful and remarkable work from the early 1970s is a treasure on the subject of human-animal inter-relations, foreshadowing views only now being taken further by transhuman and a-human philosophy movements exemplified by writers like Professor Patricia MacCormack. Here in 1973, fifty earlier, Hamel writes: 'The belief that men can change into animals, and animals into men, is as old as life itself.' This is an early, often surprising magnificent book exploring all angles of human-animal supernatural relations, from animal ghosts, to telepathy to, yes, species morphing.
