Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A child can't be owned, but parents are legally responsible for their child's care. A painting and a dog can be owned; both fall under the jurisdiction of the law and in particular, property rights. But why should a dog, man's best friend, an animal with a mind and emotions, fall under the same category as a painting? How could the law be so foolish? Requiring legal guardianship for animals would have radical consequences for how we live our lives.

Book News Annotation:

Contributors of these 23 articles consider the human-animal relationship in terms of philosophy, law, cognitive science, biomedical research, and animal care. Their topics include the case for and against animals remaining as property of humans, animal ethics and legal status, the concept of consistency in rights, the constitution of being a person, behavioral homologies, cognitive beasts, the evolution of morality, animal experimentation, why animals own their genes and therefore own themselves, pain, veterinary medicine's defense to the law, vegetarianism, and the arguing point that animals are not things.
