Attitudes to Animals by Francine L. Dolins
Book DescriptionThis thought-provoking book will ask what it is to be human, what to be animal, and what are the natures of the relationships between them. This is accomplished with philosophical and ethical discussions, scientific evidence and dynamic theoretical approaches. Attitudes to Animals will also encourage us to think not only of our relationships to non-human animals, but also of those to other, human, animals. This book provides a foundation that the reader can use to make ethical choices about animals. It will challenge readers to question their current views, attitudes and perspectives on animals, nature and development of the human-animal relationship. Human perspectives on the human-animal relationships reflect what we have learned, together with spoken and unspoken attitudes and assumptions, from our families, societies, media, education and employment.

UK Kirkus Review » A great deal has been said and written about the ethical treatment of animals in recent years - a lot of it speculative and full of hot air. This carefully edited, accessible book presents a thought-provoking cross-section of views in reference articles by more than 15 academics and individuals who have done a great deal of thinking on this issue. Based mainly around the human relationship with primates, the book expands to other animals, presenting philosophical and ethical discussions, clearly and concisely written. It is not just ethics, and some writers suggest a scientific framework and present new theoretical approaches that might be used to evaluate what it is to be human or animal, and how we might reconsider the age-old relationship between the two.
