Norbert Elias’s Civilizing Process theory
« on: October 02, 2018, 02:27:27 AM »
For the World Vegetarian Day, held yesterday, and for the World Farm Animals Day, held today, we discuss Norbert Elias’s Civilizing Process theory, which deals with the historical and cultural changes in humans’ behavior, including towards nonhumans.

We are addressing this theory despite that it is relatively old, since it relates to a current and very popular notion in the animal rights movement - McCartney’s famous quote that “if slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian”.
