Against what one might think, the expression ?other-than-human? must not be set against its corresponding ?human?. One of the main goals of this collective work is to acknowledge both concepts as part of a harmonic whole integrated in a common environment; that is to say, to suggest the study of the human species in its own environment, looking at how it perceives itself and how it makes visible, imagines and represents other-than-human nature. Specialists from di¬ erent research elds in the humanities have put together a book of extraordinary conceptual and scienti c interest, inviting us to re ect upon, understand and reconceptualise our position in the planet. These essays, coming from the areas of ecocriticism, philosophy and social sciences, do not overlook a commitment to sort out the problems in our ecosystems as well as in our ethical systems, convinced that research on models and imageries from before, now and always provide us with tools to manage the modernised and denaturalised world of today. This volume is, in sum, a link in the chain of studies that aim at building a fairer planet for all the beings that share its living space.
