Önde gelen hayvan hakları kuramcılarından biri olan Gary L. Francione, "radikal" fikirleri ile diğer kuramcılardan ayrılıyor. Bu kitapta, hayvanları koruma kanunlarında temel alınacak kadar yaygınlaşan "insanca muamele" ilkesinin pratikte hiçbir hükmünün olmadığını savunuyor. Ona göre, hayvanlar insanların malı olduğu sürece, hayvanların acısını azaltmaya yönelik hukuksal ...more

Well, I guess have to give this book 5 stars because the information and philosophy contained in the book is so worthy and is an important addition to the subject of animal rights.

I almost didn’t give it 5 stars though because:

It was a bit of a slog to read, which is a shame because the material is so important. These philosophers are so interesting to hear in lectures or to participate in discussions with them individually or in a group setting, but for reading, their language is dense and dry

I want to write a longer review of this, but basically: Excellent argument - that the humane treatment principal will always be compromised as long as we regard animals as property - clearly presented. Must read.

One of the most important books I've ever read. Ever critical thinker should read this book.

Francione is a passionate advocate of the animal rights position against welfarist approaches to animals. He writes with force and missionary zeal. To many, his views will seem extreme, e.g. he opposes pet ownership and thinks that supporting animal rights while still eating animal products is like supporting the abolition of slavery while owning a slave. To others, his views will seem like a breath of fresh air--a voice of reason in a crazy world that constantly mistreats and abuses animals for ...more

Gary Francione outlines his idea of animal rights. This is an interesting treatment of the problem of animal rights and is somewhat different from similar animal rights theorists such as Peter Singer, Tom Regan, and Carol Adams. There is one fundamental right for animals, and that is the right not to be property. Allowing people to treat animals as property creates a moral schizophrenia. Francione especially wants to attack the idea of “humane treatment” of animals, while allowing us to continue ...more
i've never read much animal rights literature, mostly because i've never felt like it was relevant to me. a lot of it seems to spend an inordinate amount of time lecturing about the abhorrent conditions of factory farms, which has always been beside the point for me. in any case, at this point i've been vegetarian for long enough that i've internalized my reasons for it pretty thoroughly. but going vegan a couple years ago made me want to reexamine them again, find a way to articulate them more ...more

Recommends it for: everyone
i learned that: we create impossible situations for non-human animals and act as if all of our interactions were emergency conflict situations in which we must pick the human over the non-human, which is not the reality; that the law, as much as it would like to consider itself secular, is based on Christian-Judeo beliefs; and, in short, that '[i:]n many ways, our prevailing ways of thinking about animals should make us skeptical of our claim that it is our rationality that distinguishes us from ...more

The arguments are clear and compelling, except when the author discusses abortion and insects. He fails to convince me that the unborn (humans) are not sentient and therefore not entitled to equal consideration. I still believe that veganism and the protection of the unborn go together. Francione also fails to put much thought into the possible rights of insects. For both of these issues, I think the precautionary principle needs to be applied: if you're not sure whether the organism is sentient ...more

I was fortunate to have Gary Francione as a professor in law school. This book was my first introduction to animal rights, and is very accessible to those (like me) with little background or exposure to the subject. It is almost impossible to listen to him and read his books without adopting a vegan lifestyle; however, I am ashamed to say I am very weak and love cheeseburgers too much to give them up.

If only I'd read this BEFORE I went to ethics competition where we argued a case regarding the "moral defensibility" of eating meat! Can't get more thorough or rigorous in refuting the logic that carnivores routinely trot out. Makes it very, VERY difficult to indulge one's whims for anything other than a vegan diet.

Recommends it for: people who aren't familiar with animal rights, and people who are.
Full of compelling research and the basic tennets/arguments for animal rights.

I liked this book a lot! It presents many interesting points against the way humans (mis)treat animals, showing the grave inconsistencies between what we believe about animal suffering and our actual actions.

Even though most people agree that inflicting suffering on animals is wrong, they continue to do so (or let others do it in their behalf). Every living being has the right to not suffer, be it fear or pain, and not to be treated as a means to an end. There is the confusion that people think

This is a great introduction to the theory of animal rights for people who are not familiar with the theory, but I thought many of the author's claims were underdeveloped and were made a little too quickly. For instance, the author does not discuss the positive duties we have to assist nonhuman animals- his theory stops short at negative duties to not harm; however, a good ethicist knows that negative duties do not exhaust the entirety of duties we have to rightholders. Furthermore, the author m ...more

The best, most thorough, well argued, and well researched animal rights book in existence. It puts Peter Singer's "Animal Liberation" to shame and makes Tom Regan's overwhelming "The Case for Animal Rights" look like child's play. Francione, a lawyer and philosopher, is a master of the convincing moral argument.
