This work contributes to the development of a theoretical context of the politics of truth about animals. By applying and extending Foucault's theory of power, this work uncovers dominant and subjugated discourses about animals and describes power-knowledge associated with statements about animals that are understood to convey true things.
LISA JOHNSON is an Associate Professor at the University of Puget Sound, USA, where she teaches law, ethics, environmental law, and animals and the law.
