Quatrième de couverture

Do animals have rights ? Do we have obligations towards them ? To what extent can we kill them for food, sport, research, education or waging war ? What problems does factory farming pose ? Why is foie gras banned in some countries ?What are the ethical issues involved in transgenic animals ? Should we ban bullfighting, seal-hunting and using wild animals in the circus ? These are just some of the questions raised by the evolving relationship between man and animal.

Animal ethics is the study of the moral status of animals : in other words, of man’s responsibility towards them. For the first time in the French-speaking world, this discipline, which originated in English-speaking countries, is presented in a clear and pedagogical manner and in an interdisciplinary perspective. Both theoretical and practical, this book is intended for students and researchers, as well as those.
