Babies and Beasts by Daniel A. Dombrowski
Book DescriptionBoth its defenders and detractors have described the argument from marginal cases as the most important to date in defense of animal rights. Hotly debated among philosophers for some twenty years, the argument concludes that no morally relevant characteristic distinguishes human beings - including infants, the severely retarded, the comatose, and other "marginal cases" - from any other animals. Babies and Beasts presents the first book-length exploration of the broad range of views relating to the argument from marginal cases and sorts out and evaluates its various uses and abuses. Daniel Dombrowski analyzes the views of many who are prominent in the debate - Peter Singer, Thomas Regan, H. J. McCloskey, Jan Narveson, John Rawls, R. G. Frey, Peter Carruthers, Michael Leahy, Robert Nozick, and James Rachels are included - in a volume that will be essential to philosophers, animal rights activists, those who work in clinical settings, and others who must sometimes deal with "marginal cases."

Contemporary Athletics and Ancient Greek Ideals, Hardback (May 2009)
Contends that the ideas of Plato, Aristotle, and Plotinus shed important light on issues - such as the pursuit of excellence, the concept of play, and the power of accepting physical limitations while also improving one's body - that remain just as relevant in our sports-obsessed age as they were in ancient Greece.
Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion, Paperback (December 2006)» View all books by Daniel A. Dombrowski
The Catholic church has always opposed abortion, but - contrary to popular belief - not always for the same reasons. This study argues that the Catholic anti-abortion stance is justified neither by modern embryology nor by ancient church teachings. It embraces and evaluates the complexities of historical Catholic positions on abortion.
