A major contribution to the debates about animals by giving a philosophical basis for many of the current views ... The various chapters successfully illustrate the uncomfortable truth that for any view about animals, someone, somewhere will come up with the argument that that view is illogical, ill-founded, or morally repugnant ... This handbook provides an instructive way of getting to grips with a variety of philosophical positions on issues such as animal pain. Marian Stamp Dawkins, Times Literary Supplement This substantial collection is a wonderful addition to the diverse philosophical discourses concerning animals, their moral status, and human obligations to nonhuman species.
