Even with multiple approaches made possible through an alliance of a few disciplines, or, more expansively, the resources of either or both of the two mega-fields of the modern educational establishment (that is, science, on the one hand, and the arts and humanities, on the other), the broad and complex issues of the human-nonhuman intersection are not well studied. Instead, we need all of our abilities in concert to approach and understand the foundational aspects of our human experience with the living beings beyond the species line.

To change any feature of the system, one has to work within the system, complying with legal procedure and other legal niceties. This applies with special force to those who would change our treatment of nonhuman animals. In the United States, for example, protection of marginalized humans can call upon the ideals of the founders and fundamental protections in the human-centered founding documents. But those who would use the legal system itself to remedy abuses of nonhumans must make their arguments in places where, historically, human exceptionalism has been the norm.

This American tradition of citing empirical evidence in legal briefs submitted to the court, pioneered in 1908 by Louis Brandeis, reflects how the insights and findings of multiple disciplines already have a major role in legal thinking. The relevant issue is bringing interdisciplinary, rigorous, and critically thought out explorations that address nonhuman animals themselves and the depth and breadth of humans’ inevitable intersection with other animals to bear on policy discussions and legal analyses of different issues.
