By Gary Steiner
Steiner provocatively evaluations postmodernist methods to the ethical prestige of animals opposed to the history of a broader indictment of postmodern suggestion and its lack of ability to set up transparent ideas for motion. He revisits the paintings of Derrida, Foucault, Nietzsche, and Heidegger, including fresh paintings through their American interpreters, and indicates that the fundamental phrases of postmodern proposal are incompatible with any definitive claims concerning the ethical prestige or rights of animalsand people. Steiner recognizes the mess ups of liberal humanist idea concerning the ethical prestige of animals; yet rather than following postmodern thinkers who reject humanist inspiration outright, he argues for the necessity to reconsider humanist notions in a fashion that avoids the anthropocentric barriers of conventional humanist idea. Drawing at the achievements of the Stoics and Kant, Steiner builds on his past paintings, constructing his principles of cosmic holism and non-anthropocentric cosmopolitanism with a purpose to arrive at a extra concrete starting place for animal rights.
