  • The Death of the Animalby Paola Cavalieri; Peter Singer

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 34.99

    While moral perfectionists rank conscious beings according to their cognitive abilities, Paola Cavalieri launches a more inclusive defense of all forms of subjectivity.

    John Hunt Publishing 2012; US$ 14.99

    Exposing the Big Game challenges the archaic, yet officially endorsed, viewpoint that the primary value of wildlife in America is to provide cheap entertainment for anyone with a gun and an unwholesome urge to kill.

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 30.99

    If nature is what lies beyond human society, then animals must be a part of it. For most people, animals are the most significant aspects of the nonhuman world.

They are also real creatures and individual subjects with whom we have... more...
