The content of the curriculum 'Animals in Modern History' is completely presented in non-fiction book or textbook. Chapters or lectures are not arranged chronologically, but divided by topics: Animals in Warfare, Meat Industry, Animals in Entertainment, etc. The curriculum covers the history of the last 300 years, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. This is a key historical period of human civilization in which animals were turned into ordinary things for the benefit of humans, just as the philosopher René Descartes (1596 -1650) argued that animals were unfeeling machines unable to think, and what was Nicolas Malebranche (1638-1715) later further explained in his quote: “Dogs, cats, and the other animals, have no intelligence, no soul in the sense in which thus the concept is usually understood. They eat without pleasure, cry without pain, grow without knowing this. They have no desires and no knowledge.”
The project is now ready for global implementation. The beautifully illustrated 'Animals in Modern History' book with a complementary documentary, 'Animals: A Parallel History', comprise a course on our relationship with animals in the modern world. As animals do not have the power of speech and their fate is not taught in schools, this movie is a modest attempt to show people the shared history.
With Animals in Modern History curriculum we can make a foundation for irreversible change already in the next generation.
