What's The Opposite Of Pathetic Fallacy?

| | Comments (2)

I felt it appropriate to a good look at irony this week thanks to Captain Delano and I was exploring the many ways irony was listed in Hamilton. I forgot about a pathetic fallacy (type of personification that animates aspects of nature with human qualities or feelings) and there's almost a reverse of that in "Cereno." I wonder if animating human beings with the qualities found in nature and animals is a term in itself?

What about animism? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animism

Or humanoid? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanoid

These may be helpful in determining what a human being with qualities of nature or animals may be called.
