In this lyrical and beautifully written book, Raimond Gaita tells inspirational, poignant, sometimes funny but never sentimental stories of the dogs, cats and cockatoos that lived and died within his own family. The Philosopher's Dog is above all a book about our creatureliness and its place in the understanding of our humanity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Philosopher's Dog is an outstanding exercise in seeing things clearly.' - Jonathan Ree, The Independent

'Gaita's charming book remains genuinely illuminating. - Stephen Law, The Guardian

'In everything that Raimond Gaita writes we sense a generous heart at work, as well as a lucid intelligence. The Philosopher's Dog is a book to give to the kind of person who asks what philosophy is for.' - J. M. Coetzee

'Fascinating ... A thoughtful meditation on the relationship between humans and animals that crosses the boundary between the the philosophical and the personal and blends very well the anecdotal with the theoretical.' - The Sunday Tribune

' ... very well written, charming, reflective and provocative.' - Journal of Moral Philosophy
