Eva Meijer: “Rational arguments are not sufficient for vegan outreach”
We recently met up with multitalented Eva Meijer. This year she published a book on animal language called ‘Dierentalen’. Her third novel ‘Het Vogelhuis’ got published in September and was well received in national newspapers and on tv. She is also writing her PhD thesis at the University of Amsterdam, on political animal voices.
Accompagnied by her dog Doris, she discusses the role of philosophy within the animal rights movement, animal rights at the university and the relationship between her literary and philosophical work.
