5.0 out of 5 stars Not a second gone to waste, 7 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Animals as Persons: Essays on the Abolition of Animal Exploitation (Paperback)
With clarity, consistency and without any compromise, Gary L. Francione sets out to raise the status of animals. Where others have accorded humans some special trait or other, which we in no certain terms have, Francione demands sentience -- a means to the end of continued existence -- is not only necessary but sufficient to be accorded the right not to be treated as property.

I have long been interested in philosophy, especially ethics and epistemology, but I've always been surprised at the lack of lucidity in philosophers' argument. Accordingly, I have somewhat understood people's aversions against reading philosophy. Apparently, questions of right and wrong are better answered by law professors, especially after having taken the stance that, "Yes, the world does, for all intents and purposes, exist to me as I perceive it."

Thank you, Prof. Francione!
