This audio guide gives a retrospective view on how humans perceived and described animals throughout the last 2350 years. All quotations are marked by strange, sometimes erroneous conceptions and misinterpretations of the seen; often inflicted by the author's intense impressions during the primal encounter with an unknown creature, as well as their dependence on thought systems of their time, such as superstition, religiosity, magical thinking, racism or imperialism.
Warning: Some of the world views expressed in these quotes are severely outdated.
