Adam and Eve and the Goats: Genesis as a History of the Animal
In my sophomore essay, I tried to shed light on the animal-history hidden in Genesis, looking at, among other things, dominion, naming, sacrifice, and intersubjectivity across species. Though I’ve only effected a series of incomplete sketches, I hope they at least instill the sense that the human creation myth is flat and lifeless if severed from the animal one.
