Animal Others: On Ethics, Ontology, and Animal Life
H. Peter Steeves
SUNY Press, Sep 2, 1999 - Philosophy - 294 pages
Animal Others brings together original contributions that explore the status of animals from the continental philosophy perspective. Examined are the moral status of animals, the question of animal minds, an understanding of what it is to be an animal and what it is to be with an animal, as well as the roles animals play in the work of philosophers such as Husserl, Heidegger, Nietzsche, Merleau-Ponty, and Derrida.
Those already immersed in continental philosophy will find the subject matter of the animal to be a new interest and a promising new venture. Analytic philosophers and other academics will be rewarded by a different approach to old questions, while the general reader interested in animal rights issues will discover new arguments to back up their positions and fresh challenges which may question long-held beliefs.
Contributors include Ralph R. Acampora, Elizabeth A. Behnke, Lynda Birke, Carleton Dallery, James G. Hart, Monika Langer, Steven W. Laycock, Alphonso Lingis, William McNeill, Luciana Parisi, H. Peter Steeves, and David Wood.
