The Animal Cause: Ethical Challenges and Political Strategies

Humans frequently reduce animals to being mere objects or products for consumption and pleasure. Corine Pelluchon urges us to put an end to this degrading treatment and to include animals as subjects in our moral community and as part of the framework of a new global zoopolitics. Pelluchon believes that if we are to put an end to this, a new global political theory is urgently needed, one that is based on a new conception of the subject which will include animals in its moral considerations, and that will heed their needs and interests in the definition of the common good.
