What gives an animal 'rights?' What makes product testing on animals wrong? In Animal Rights, Human Wrongs prominent activist and philosopher Tom Regan skillfully puts forth the argument for animal rights through the exploration of two questions central to moral theory: What makes an act right?

In Animal Rights, Human Wrongs prominent activist and philosopher Tom Regan skillfully puts forth the argument for animal rights through the exploration of two questions central to moral theory: What makes an act right? What makes an act wrong? Taking into consideration moral theories such as contractarianism, utilitarianism, and Kantian ethics, Regan provides the theoretical framework that grounds a responsible pro-animal rights perspective, and ultimately explores how asking moral questions about other animals can lead to a better understanding of ourselves. The necessity of making a transition from moral theory to moral practice becomes startlingly clear as Reagan examines the commonplace, everyday choices that would be affected by believing in a moral theory that affirms the rights of animals. For the many people who have ever wondered 'what difference does it make if animals have rights, ' Animal Rights, Humans Wrongs provides a provocative and intriguing answer. For a discussion of animal rights tailored to a more general audience, see Empty Cages: Facing the Challenge of Animal Rights (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003).

    This book does a perfect job at fulfilling its purpose; providing a basic, and convincing, view of deontological ethics in favour of animal rights (specifically, for "subjects of a life"); If you are convinced by rights based ethics, you will probably be convinced by Regans' arguments. That is what this book should really be read for. If you want a basic introduction to the animal rights argument, read Singers' chapters on animals in Practical Ethics. If you want something slightly more complex, This book does a perfect job at fulfilling its purpose; providing a basic, and convincing, view of deontological ethics in favour of animal rights (specifically, for "subjects of a life"); If you are convinced by rights based ethics, you will probably be convinced by Regans' arguments. That is what this book should really be read for. If you want a basic introduction to the animal rights argument, read Singers' chapters on animals in Practical Ethics. If you want something slightly more complex, while staying on books aimed at the general public, read the whole of Animal Liberation.

    Tom Regan gives a Kantian inspired 'rights' perspective to animal ethics. This is an accessible and very readable text from an important author in animal ethics. Regan advocates for abolishing the use of animals because, like humans, they are 'subjects of a life'. Killing or using them for fur or food, which are his examples, go against inherent rights that should be allowed to them. Explaining why humans deserve rights is the logic behind granting animals rights. What this book could use is som Tom Regan gives a Kantian inspired 'rights' perspective to animal ethics.

Explaining why humans deserve rights is the logic behind granting animals rights. What this book could use is some more examples of the types of exploitations that should be abolished. More work could also be covered in post-abolition living. He does not go into this because it is too grand a goal. I feel that at the end of this book, a more imploring work could be written in inspiring ways to promote animal rights and jump-start a movement.

    Un libro ameno de leer. Es un punto de vista interesante de uso de los animales, aunque, según mi visión, tiene algunas visiones y comentarios sesgados y sin sustento.
