Product description

Review

Can Animals Be Moral? offers the most comprehensive analysis and evaluation to date of the traditional views underlying scepticism about the moral subjecthood of animals and it does an excellent job of clarifying the conceptual and argumentative landscape. (Robert Streifer, Mind)

Philosophers will appreciate the carefulness of Rowlands's arguments, the clarity of his writing, and his understated sense of humor. (Jessica Pierce, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews.)

An excellent book, not only on what it is for animals to be moral, but what it is for humans to be moral, whether one agrees with the conclusions or not. In short, it is a book on what it is to be moral per se that challenges with skill and imagination goes-without-saying preconceptions of the moral and so deserves to be widely read. (John Shand, The Philosophical Quarterly)

This book makes an enormous contribution to an under-explored topic. It makes a novel and persuasive case that animals can be moral within certain limits, and lays the way for future philosophical and empirical enquiry. (Dr. Tom McClelland, Metapsychology)

An important contribution to the extended field of Ethics...very crisply and also engagingly written. (Chris Bratcher, Ethical Record)

I would strongly recommend this book ... to those who are studying animal behaviour and to those who are working on ethics and moral status of animals. (Martin Whiting, Animal Welfare)
