Publisher Description

For most of human history, killing animals presented few moral problems; they seemed made for our use. But the rapid growth and increasing dominance of human civilization, along with the discovery that humans and animals share many traits, raises many questions about the moral standing and “rights” of other living things. Is it fair to privilege human priorities over the rest of nature, and if so, on what basis or under what circumstances? Do we have a duty to protect animals or even plants?

The Morality in Our Age series examines the historical and philosophical background of today’s most pressing moral challenges. Here the realities of money, sex, power, and violence meet the ideals of responsibility, integrity, and moral well-being. Though a final “answer” is notoriously elusive in moral discussion, you’ll develop a much better insight into the forces and principles at play on today’s most serious moral issues, problems, and dilemmas.

    " There were certainly aspects to the human treatment of animals that I hadn't considered so, this book was enlightening in that regard. But the treatment of the subject was a little stuffy and even felt preachy. All in all, I think the book presented a fair case. "
