Animal Rights

Cora Diamond

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents commentaries on Peter Singer's approach to animal rights. It contends that Singer's attack on ‘speciesism’ mischaracterises the moral issues at stake and contends that if people are to be on the side of animals, it must be for reasons different from those used by Singer and others who object to the current human use and mistreatment of animals. The chapter argues against the call to stop the killing of animals for food and the use of animals in scientific research.

Keywords:   animal rights, Peter Singer, moral issues, speciesism, misuse of animals, animals for food, scientific research
