Editorial Reviews

Review

With this book, Steiner establishes himself as one of the most talented and insightful philosophers working in the burgeoning field of animal rights

(Richard Wolin, The Graduate Center, City University of New York)|

Gary Steiner's polemic is directed at a wide range of modern thinkers who have addressed animal-human relations. He also offers an eloquent plea for a cosmopolitanism that will include all living beings.

(J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize-winning author)|

Anyone who has struggled with the so-called French theory in the field of animal studies will find in this volume a clear exposition of its cultural roots and substantive contents, together with a sympathetic appreciation of its merits and a lucid assessment of its shortcomings. But this book is much more. It is a global overview and a reasoned critique of our anthropocentric philosophical tradition, from Aristotle to John Rawls, put in the service of the construction of a new and consistent theory of justice for all sentient beings.

(Paola Cavalieri, author of The Animal Question: Why Nonhuman Animals Deserve Human Rights)
