Shifting boundaries: Animal-human relationships and modern surgery – An interview with Thomas Schlich

Interview with Thomas SchlichThere is a paradox in our society: on the one hand, we live in a pet-keeping culture where animals are loved and pampered. On the other hand, we use animals as experimental technologies and support practices such as xenotransplantation. How do we explain the co-existence of these two opposite cultures in one society? In this interview, Professor Thomas Schlich, who holds the Canada Research Chair in History of Medicine and teaches at McGill University, provides us with food for thoughts on the various and indispensable roles animals have played in the development of modern surgery.
