  5. Are Illegal Direct Actions by Animal Rights Activists Ethically Vigilante?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Michael P. Allen, Erica von Essen

    Constructed as terrorist, illegal direct actions by animal rights activists have become the subject of draconian law enforcement measures in the US and UK. Some scholars respond to this phenomenon by interpreting such actions to protect vulnerable animals not as terrorist but civilly...

  6. Xenotransplantation, Subsistence Hunting and the Pursuit of Health: Lessons for Animal Rights-Based Vegan Advocacy

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Nathan M. Nobis

    I argue that, contrary to what Tom Regan suggests, his rights view implies that subsistence hunting is wrong, that is, killing animals for food is wrong even when they are the only available food source, since doing so violates animal rights. We can see that subsistence hunting is wrong on...

  7. We Are All Noah: Tom Regan's Olive Branch to Religious Animal Ethics

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Matthew C. Halteman

    For the past thirty years, Tom Regan has bucked the trend among secular animal rights philosophers and spoken patiently and persistently to the best angels of religious ethics in a stream of publications that enjoins religious scholars, clergy, and lay people alike to rediscover the resources...

  8. Chasing Secretariat's Consent: The Impossibility of Permissible Animal Sports

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: James Rocha

    Tom Regan argued that animal sports cannot be morally permissible because they are cruel and the animals do not voluntarily participate. While Regan is correct about actual animal sports, we should ask whether substantially revised animal sports could be permissible. We can imagine significant...

  9. Harming (Respectfully) Some to Benefit Others: Animal Rights and the Moral Imperative of Trap-Neuter-Release Programs

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Cheryl E. Abbate

    Because spaying/neutering animals involves the harming of some animals in order to prevent harm to others, some ethicists, like David Boonin, argue that the philosophy of animal rights is committed to the view that spaying/neutering animals violates the respect principle and that Trap Neuter...

  10. Nozick's Libertarian Critique of Regan

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Josh Milburn

    Robert Nozick’s oft-quoted review of Tom Regan’s The Case for Animal Rights levels a range of challenges to Regan’s philosophy. Many commentators have focussed on Nozick’s putative defence of speciesism, but this has led to them overlooking other aspects of the critique....

  11. "Subjects-of-a-Life," Entelechy, and Intrinsic Teleology

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Josephine Donovan

    This article explores the question of what is a “subject-of-a-life,” Tom Regan’s celebrated term for a living entity to whom, he argued, we humans owe ethical duty. I return to ancient concepts of entelechy and teleological organization, arguing that, stripped of theological...

  12. The impact of atypical early histories on pet or performer chimpanzees

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Hani D. Freeman, Stephen R. Ross

      It is widely accepted that an animal’s early history, including but not limited to its rearing history, can have a profound impact on later behavior. In the case of captive animals, many studies have used categorical measures such as mother reared or human reared that do not...

  17. Is a "Good Death" at the Time of Animal Slaughter an Essentially Contested Concept?

    | Contributor(s):: Qurat ulAin, Terry L. Whiting

    The question of how to kill animals for food has persisted unresolved in the Anglo-American and European social and political discourse for more than a century. Scientific informed narrative has been directed at “documenting” the experience of the slaughtered animal in the last few...

  18. Brazilian Citizens' Opinions and Attitudes about Farm Animal Production Systems

    | Contributor(s):: Maria C. Yunes, Marina A. G. von Keyserlingk, Maria J. Hotzel

    The inclusion of societal input is needed for food animal production industries to retain their “social license to operate”. Little is known about the knowledge and attitudes of Brazilian citizens regarding food animal production systems. The aim of this study was to explore the...

  19. The Road to Hell Is Paved with Good Intentions: Why Harm–Benefit Analysis and Its Emphasis on Practical Benefit Jeopardizes the Credibility of Research

    | Contributor(s):: Herwig Grimm, Matthias Eggel, Anna Deplazes-Zemp, Nikola Biller-Andorno

    It is our concern that European Union Directive 2010/63/EU with its current project evaluation of animal research in the form of a harm–benefit analysis may lead to an erosion of the credibility of research. The HBA assesses whether the inflicted harm on animals is outweighed by potential...

    | Contributor(s):: Patrycia Sato, Maria J. Hotzel, Marina A.G. von Keyserlingk
