Intellectually stimulating book on philosophy and wolves
The author, a philosophy professor and quite successful at the time he writes this, has given a retrospective story of his life with a wolf, Brenin. The story begins when he is still a young beginning assistant professor and goes forward during the life of Brenin as the author becomes more successful. The focus is on the difference between the wolf and the man and reflection on how various philosophers' thought applies to these differences. I was charmed by the author's willingness to look frankly at his own foibles and to write humorously about himself as well as Brenin. This short book manages to cover Brenin's entire 10 year lifespan without unnecessary detail. The authors does a wonderful job of picking out what is important to convey meaning.
