講座簡介:以帶有佛教精神的動物保護組織「關懷生命協會」與帶有「Gaga」與基督教精神的新竹縣尖石鄉泰雅族為對象的多物種民族誌研究,探究台灣漢人、原住民與非人類動物之間的互相關係。該研究發現:(1)在生態保護公開言談方面,受台灣宗教法律上的政治影響,佛教受到限制;以及(2)適用於一切有知覺的生命的「生命平等」概念,與基於歐洲的政治及環境理論的國際人權與環境保育法,兩者是不可通約的。這項研究思考生命平等在台灣可否施行,表明另類平等與生態的概念受限於基於人類平等、自由人文主義的國際法律體系。

Talk Description: This multi-species ethnography of the Buddhism-inspired animal protection organization Life Conservationist Association and the “Gaga” and Christianity-inspired Atayal communities of Jianshi Township (Hsinchu County, Taiwan) examines the relationships between Han and indigenous people and nonhuman animals in Taiwan. The research found that (1) the politics of religion have restricted the participation of traditions such as Buddhism in public discourse on ecological issues and (2) the Buddhist concept of “equality of life,” which applies to all sentient beings, is incommensurable with international human rights and environmental conservation law based on European political and environmental theory. Nicolaisen will present equality of life as a viable alternative to human equality and demonstrate how international legal standards rooted in human equality and liberal humanism serve to constrain rather than protect alternative theories of equality and ecology.
