We are currently reading...

Ethics, Humans, and Other Animals by Rosalind Hursthouse

Rosalind Hursthouse carefully introduces one of three standard approaches in current ethical theory: utilitarianism, rights, and virtue ethics. She then proceeds to clearly explain how each approach encourages us to think about our treatment of animals. Every chapter is linked to a reading from a key exponent of each approach.

'Clear, insightful look at all sides of the argument about our treatment of animals.'
- Sunday Times
'Anyone who seriously worked through this book would become a very careful and critical thinker.'
- Nathan Nobis, Ph.D,  Department of Philosophy & Religion, Moorehouse College
