Les douze etudes ici proposees jalonnent un parcours s'etalant sur une vingtaine d'annees et s'etant ordonne autour d'une question centrale: et si nous n'avions rien entendu de la difference introduite par le "logos" entre l'homme et l'animal dans l'Antiquite? Ne l'aurions-nous pas surestime chez Aristote ou, a l'inverse, minimise chez les stoiciens? Qu'est-ce qu'un "animal politique"? Qu'en est-il de l'intelligence et des capacites representatives des animaux? Pourquoi une polemique sur la question de la possession du "logos" par les animaux s'est-elle trouvee liee a celles du vegetarisme et du mode de vie du sage? Repondre a ces questions impliquaient d'abord de relire patiemment les textes, y compris les plus connus, en s'efforcant de n'y rien precipiter et de leur redonner une nouvelle fraicheur par-dela des couches d'interpretation les ayant rendus souvent meconnaissables et pour cela meme meconnus parce que trop bien connus.
