The Political Theory of Animal Rights
Manchester University Press, 2005 M07 22 - 181 páginas
This book seeks to examine the impact on political thinking of regarding animals as morally important beings. Garner notes how political theorists have largely neglected the effect on political thinking of incorporating the interests of animals. Yet, he argues, the case for granting them a high moral status is practically unanswerable. As a result, the author challenges the presumption that political theory is about the"'human question". He seeks to identify the political ideology that is best able to further the interests of animals.
