    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Carolyn Bailey

  2. Animal Rights and Incredulous Stares

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Bob Fischer

    I propose an analogy between the thesis that animals have rights and David Lewis's commitment to modal realism. I argue that just as Lewis received incredulous stares that seem to justify rejecting his metaphysical hypothesis, so the thesis that animals have rights can be reasonably...

  4. 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...

  5. 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....

    | Contributor(s):: Shitangshu Roy

    This thesis expands on the model presented in Sue Donaldson and Will Kymlicka’s Zoopolis for how companion animals might be treated as co-citizens in a post-Animal Rights world. I will attempt to clarify the distinct political obligations owed to companion animals throughout their lifetimes...

  11. Xenograft and Partial Affections

    | Contributor(s):: James A. Nelson

    Making moral decisions of the sort brought to our attention by contemporary philosophical reflections on animals has a tendency to highlight our particular connections to other people. The decision to adopt a vegetarian diet, for instance, is sure to affect relationships with spouses and friends,...

  17. Beasts abstract not: a sociology of animal protection

    | Contributor(s):: Lyle Munro

    Why and how do people campaign on behalf of a species that is not their own? The thesis seeks to address this question by showing how the animal protection movement constructs speciesism and its practices - vivisection, factory farming and bloodsports - as a social problem on a par with other...
