Lecture by Laurent Bègue as part of the cycle "1 hour of shrinkage per month".

Through the presentation of work based on various methodologies, we will present the individual, circumstantial, cultural and systemic causes that are involved in the conduct
cruel inflicted on animals. We will also present the limits of a purely psychiatric approach to understanding these deviant behaviors.
Indeed, these cannot be reduced to individual psychic disorders and to a certain extent fall within the general representations that one has of the value to be given to animal lives.

Laurent Begue is professor of social psychology at the University of Grenoble Alpes, member of the Institut Universitaire de France.
