Clio’s Psyche Call for Papers – Psychology of Human-Animal Relationships
Special Issue, June 2012
Throughout history, humans have experienced many different relationships with animals: companion and helper, enemy, food, entertainment, totem and god. We anthropomorphize animals. We grieve at the loss of our animal companions. We learn about humans from the work of ethologists in the scientific study of animal behaviour.
