Animal Rights

Elizabeth Anderson

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines some of the tensions among animal welfare, animal rights, and environmental protection ethics. It explains that while animal rights advocates object to animal experimentation, this practice is acceptable to those who believe in animal welfare. The chapter shows that those who believe in environmental ethics might support the hunting of deer and rabbits when this is necessary to protect ecological well-being. It proposes an alternative approach to understanding the evaluative claims of the three perspectives, called rational attitude theory of value.

Keywords:   animal welfare, animal rights, environmental protection, animal experimentation, hunting, rational attitude, theory of value
