Animals and Ethics 101


19 Ungluers have Faved this Work

Animals and Ethics 101 helps readers identify and evaluate the arguments for and against various uses of animals, such as: 

  • Is it morally wrong to experiment on animals? Why or why not? 
  • Is it morally permissible to eat meat? Why or why not? 
  • Are we morally obligated to provide pets with veterinary care (and, if so, how much?)? Why or why not? 

And other challenging issues and questions. Developed as a companion volume to an online "Animals & Ethics" course, it is ideal for classroom use, discussion groups or self study. The book presupposes no conclusions on these controversial moral questions about the treatment of animals, and argues for none either. Its goal is to help the reader better engage the issues and arguments on all sides with greater clarity, understanding and argumentative rigor. Nathan Nobis, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA USA.
