Perros de paja es una obra estimulante y radical, escrita con los angeles intención de desafiar nuestras más arraigadas nociones de lo que es un ser humano. Desde Platón hasta el cristianismo, o desde l. a. Ilustración hasta Nietzsche, los angeles tradición occidental se ha basado en creencias arrogantes y erróneas sobre los seres humanos y su lugar en el mundo. Filosofías como el liberalismo y el marxismo conciben los angeles humanidad como una especie cuyo destino es trascender los límites naturales y conquistar los angeles Tierra. Incluso en los angeles actualidad, a pesar de los descubrimientos de Darwin, los angeles práctica totalidad de las escuelas de pensamiento parte de los angeles creencia según los angeles cual los seres humanos son radicalmente distintos al resto de los animales. John grey sostiene que esa tesis humanista es una ilusión. El objetivo de Perros de paja es explorar cuál es el aspecto del mundo y de los angeles vida humana una vez abandonado definitivamente el humanismo.
Perros de paja analiza cuestiones filosóficas stories como l. a. naturaleza del yo, el libre albedrío, l. a. moralidad, el progreso y el valor de los angeles verdad. Tomando el arte, los angeles poesía, las ciencias y, cómo no, l. a. propia filosofía como fuentes de inspiración, John grey presenta una panorámica posthumanista del mundo y de l. a. vida humana. Se trata de un libro estimulante, perturbador en ocasiones, que lleva al lector a cuestionarse sus más hondas creencias.
