Inhaltsangabe: Animals and Why They Matter examines the barriers that our philosophical traditions have erected between human beings and animals and reveals that the too-often ridiculed subject of animal rights is an issue crucially related to such problems within the human community as racism, sexism, and age discrimination. Mary Midgley's profound and clearly written narrative is a thought-provoking study of the way in which the opposition between reason and emotion has shaped our moral and political ideas and the problems it has raised. Whether considering vegetarianism, women's rights, or the "humanity" of pets, this book goes to the heart of the question of why all animals matter.
Inhaltsangabe: In "Animals and Why They Matter", Mary Midgley examines the barriers that our traditions have erected between man and animals, and argues that the often ridiculed subject of animal rights is an issue crucially related to such problems within the human community as racism, sexism, and age discrimination. The book brings together two intellectual currents: an increased scientific understanding and public appreciation of animals, and an increasing tendency by philosophers to extend moral questions beyond the barrier of our own species. Mary Midgley has published "Beast and Man", on the topic of human uniqueness, and "Heart and Mind", on moral psychology.
