Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This book comprises four essays previously published roughly as presented here and four recent lectures newly published--all on moral questions. Regan believes that the questions have correct answers and that it is important to see why they are correct. All the essays concern the boundaries of the moral community, e.g., whether we have moral obligations toward nonhuman animals or special moral obligations toward children, etc. Regan believes that people are coming to see themselves as members of a life community to which they owe respect and concern. He examines both theoretical and practical matters, e.g., the nature of inherent value, child pornography, people as caretakers of the biosphere, etc. He writes clearly and sensitively, and his book deserves to be widely read.

"We must be immensely grateful to Tom Regan for the work he has done in defense of all those wonderful companions that surround us in the natural world. In the process, he has done much to save us from those dark and deadly forces that dwell within the human frame. Our compassion must be a comprehensive concern for the world of the living or it will not be at all."
Thomas Berry, author of The Dream of the World

"Building on feminist theory, The Thee Generation ambitiously challenges progressive feminist philosophy to acknowledge animals' moral standing, while demonstrating how patriarchal moral theories have concealed the legitimacy of caring as part of a full moral life. Indispensable reading in an era of disposable philosophies."
Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat

"Tom Regan is one of our ablest contemporary philosophers working to expand our moral sensitivities beyond other humans toward a larger respect for the community of life on Earth in its myriad forms. In The Thee Generation he continues this argument with insight and with power.... Here is ethics in theory and in practice, facing the future and seeking truth that will reform the world."
Holmes Rolson, III, Colorado State University and author of Environmental Ethics
