The death of the animal : a dialogue by Paola Cavalieri( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While moral perfectionists rank conscious beings according to their cognitive abilities, Paola Cavalieri launches a more inclusive defense of all forms of subjectivity. In concert with Peter Singer, J.M. Coetzee, Harlan B. Miller, and other leading animal studies scholars, she expands our understanding of the nonhuman in such a way that the derogatory category of "the animal" becomes meaningless. In so doing, she presents a nonhierachical approach to ethics that better respects the value of the conscious self." "As Peter Singer writes in his foreword, the implications of this conversation extend far beyond the issue of the moral status of animals. They "get to the heart of some important differences about how we should do philosophy, and how philosophy can relate to our everyday life." From the divergences between analytical and continental approaches to the relevance of posthumanist thinking in contemporary ethics, the psychology of speciesism, and the practical consequences of an antiperfectionist stance, The Death of the Animal confronts issues that will concern anyone interested in a serious study of morality."--Jacket

Philosophy and the politics of animal liberation( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited collection testifies to the fact that the animal liberation movement is now entering its political phase, after a period dominated by ethical approaches that undermined the paradigm of human supremacy and demanded justice for nonhuman beings. The contributors of this book collectively confront and take on questions of social transformation, guided by the idea that philosophy has an important role to play even at such a new level. They start from such diverse perspectives as critical theory, left liberalism, and biopolitical thought. The result is an articulated picture in which, beyond any principled divergence, it is possible to detect the emergence of a relevant set of shared political preoccupations. This exploration of those offers fresh theoretical insights and suggestions for praxis"--Provided by publisher

One world : l'etica della globalizzazione by Peter Singer( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in Italian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I terroristi che distruggono i grattacieli con gli aerei e i proprietari delle auto sportive che contribuiscono all'effetto serra mettono a rischio il futuro dell'umanità. È con questo inusuale accostamento che inizia il nuovo e provocatorio libro di Peter Singer, uno tra i piú discussi e autorevoli filosofi viventi, che, mettendo a nudo i problemi piú scottanti del mondo attuale, si scaglia contro i potenti che strumentalizzano la globalizzazione "perché talvolta rappresenta un serio ostacolo al miglioramento della condizione umana". E avanza alcune proposte: un maggiore impegno individuale e collettivo nella lotta contro la povertà, per una riforma delle istituzioni internazionali, una stretta cooperazione regionale, la difesa dell'ambiente. Per mettere in pratica queste proposte è necessario, secondo Singer, considerare che, vivendo in un unico mondo sempre piú interconnesso, le regole devono essere improntate a un'etica globale. One World, attraverso il prisma della morale, offre suggerimenti che ciascuno di noi può adottare per risolvere problemi che non possiamo piú ignorare
