Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0877227721, Paperback)

The revolution examined in this collection of essays is a revolution of the human spirit. In this revolution, Tom Regan passionately contends that the expansive ethic of service is replacing the suffocating ethic of greed. Unlike previous generations, 'The Thee Generation' asks, 'What do I have to give?' rather than 'What can I get to Keep?' Regan defines 'Thee' as those to be served: the handicapped, the poor, the illiterate, the homeless, the starving and the abused, those newly born, and those soon to die. This generation is generous enough to include the animal kingdom, and even the earth itself, for the world of 'The Thee Generation' is a place where a shared sense of community replaces the void of individual estrangement.Each of these provocative, readable essays, most of which have not been previously published, offers answers to important moral questions and attempts to identify the right reasons for those answers. Regan addresses such topics as child pornography, feminism, deep ecology, vivisection, Christian theology, and career choice. The questions he raises force us to consider the boundaries of the moral community, and what it means to be human in our own generation: 'The human is but one life form among many, and what distinguishes us from the larger community of life is not our power to subdue but our responsibility to protect'. Author note: Tom Regan, Professor of Philosophy at North Carolina State University, has published numerous books including "Bloomsbury's Prophet" (Temple) and "The Case for Animal Rights".
