The unheeded cry : animal consciousness, animal pain, and science by Bernard E Rollin( Book )

30 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work evaluates the stance of animal-using scientists in the positivist tradition. It shows how this stance leads to the denial of the existence of animal consciousness and pain, and shows how this denial must be changed if science is to be both coherent and morally responsible
The Frankenstein syndrome : ethical and social issues in the genetic engineering of animals by Bernard E Rollin( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a philosophically sophisticated and scientifically well-informed discussion of the moral and social issues raised by genetically engineering animals, a powerful technology which has major implications for society. Unlike other books on this emotionally charged subject, the author attempts to inform, not inflame, the reader about the real problems society must address in order to manage this technology. Bernard Rollin is both a professor of philosophy, and physiology and biophysics, and writes from a uniquely well-informed perspective on this topic. The style is non-technical and anecdotal and will ensure that the book can be used on a wide range of courses on bioethics, biotechnology, veterinary medicine and public policy. The book could also appeal to a general, non-academic reader with a serious interest in genetic engineering
An introduction to veterinary medical ethics : theory and cases by Bernard E Rollin( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most difficult issues that confronts veterinarians and staff today concerns the profession's obligation to the animal and the sometimes conflicting demands from clients, peers and society. The veterinarian's role has become more complex with new ethical challenges posed by issues such as growing public awareness regarding animal welfare, increasing economic value of companion animals, growth of veterinary specialization, experimentation with alternative and complementary medicine, and concern for pain management and mental well-being of animals. Written by an acknowledged pioneer in veterinary ethics, An Introduction to Veterinary Medical Ethics addresses the ethical challenges that veterinarians face daily as they seek to balance obligations to animal, client, peers, society and self. The book offers a highly readable and approachable introduction to the nature of ethical theory, reasoning and decision-making, and its practical application to veterinary medicine. Now with over 100 real-life veterinary case histories and analysis, this edition also includes new discussions of animal pain, distress and happiness, ethics of critical care, alternative medicine, legal status and value of animals, and Aesculapian authority"
Farm animal welfare : social, bioethical, and research issues by Bernard E Rollin( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Animals born with bones and muscles are meant to move. In modern systems of intensive agriculture, however, many animals - notably, swine, veal calves, and poultry - are rigorously confined. In this book Professor Bernard E. Rollin describes problems of animal welfare in today's agriculture, discusses the research that exists for improving these systems, and proposes topics for further study. Rollin urges animal producers and agricultural scientists to begin now to address welfare problems. He cites the biomedical research community, which ignored issues of pain control and animal welfare until public concern led to federal legislation. Promising work has already been done in Europe, where the public has demanded that livestock not suffer. A new social ethic in the United States calls for humane agricultural systems that meet the needs and natures of the animals we use

Harley-Davidson and philosophy : full-throttle Aristotle by Bernard E Rollin( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders' tight leather garb? What's it like to live a dual life as a
