Description: Attitudes to Animals provides a foundation that the reader can use to make ethical choices about animals. It will challenge readers to question their current views, attitudes, and perspectives on animals and the nature and development of the human-animal relationship. Human perspectives on the human-animal relationship reflect what we have learned, together with spoken and unspoken attitudes and assumptions, from our families, societies, media, education, and employment. This thought-provoking book delves into what it means to be human, what it means to be animal, and the nature of the relationship between them. This is accomplished with philosophical and ethical discussions, scientific evidence, and dynamic theoretical approaches.
