A VERY week ending - 'welfarism - is that what the animals were getting from bioethicists in 1996 (as many are getting NOW from scientists, bioethicists, and policy makers)? Jasper and Nelkin end with seeing this as a sociological conflict between human beings, and sociology is where this was debated before, but that treats the moral claims of animals dismissively, and they deserve to be treated as serious moral claims, albeit in a matrix that is biased towards the oppressors (and not all of us need to be among them). How should that sociological fact of 'framing the questions' be addressed in such a treatment. The late Henry Spira wrote highly of this book.

It's a very useful book - and seeing what Jasper and Nelkin see is helpful to all of us.
