Overview

Book Intro

(English) Companion Human

 

The story of all life in the world told by a grandfather to his grandchild that is valuable just with its mere existence.

Fairy tales pierce through the theme of ‘ecological restoration’ of nature and humans. ‘Ecologism’ that the author talks about encompasses the restoration of the physical natural ecosystem, purification of the social system, and the restoration of the individual and community. Realizing ecologism in modern society dotted with the savagery of self-centered rationality, materialism, and human alienation is a challenging and difficult task, but the author filled his aspirations for restoring the ecosystem that he could not give up on through 10 works.

In his title piece ‘Companion Human’ the author depicts dogs that have become the masters of the world and humans who were reduced to their companion humans. 

Humans who had their habitats taken away by dogs as a result of environmental pollution is something that can occur only in a fairy tale, but it raises alarms at this moment of hardships due to COVID-19 that is the result of the immoderation of humans.

 

(中國語/中文) 宠物人类

这是爷爷讲给孙子的故事集,围绕世界上一切珍贵生命展开。

人与自然的“生态复苏”作为主题贯穿全书。作者强调的“生态主义”包括三个因素,物理层面自然生态的复原、社会体系的净化、个人和共同体的恢复。现代社会充斥着以自我为中心的理性野蛮、物质万能主义、人类疏远现象,很难实现真正的生态主义。但作者依旧没有放弃恢复生态主义的愿望,其著作的十部作品中都有对此的强烈表达。

作者的主要作品《宠物人类》,描述了作为地球主人的狗和宠物人类之间的故事。作品中环境污染致使人类家园被狗占领,虽然这只可能发生在童话中,但联想到正是由于人类的无节制,才致使疫情的发生,以及抗疫生活的艰难,让人不得不有所警惕。
