Pressestimmen


"The Ethics of Captivity is a very important book and will make a significant and unique contribution to the literature on the lives of innumerable individuals. The essays cover a lot of ground both in dealing with the major issues and from a nice comparative perspective. This book must be widely read not only by academics but also by people who can make a difference for the billions of animals and millions of people who live in captivity. The content, organization, and accessible style of these essays will allow people with many different interests to learn about the ethics of captivity."--Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals, Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals, and editor of Ignoring Nature No More: The Case for Compassionate Conservation





"Combining heartfelt but sober descriptions of the captivity experiences of several animal species (including elephants and chimpanzees) and of human prisoners with examinations of the ethical problems captivity raises, these essays significantly challenge a range of practices that most people take for granted... This collection has much to offer... Recommended."

"The book's manifold perspectives deliver a valuably intricate understanding of the nuanced inflections we might consider when we assess and deliberate the ethics of captivity...generally intelligent and useful..."

HASH(0x8bc8ca74) von 5 Sternen Provocative and expansive 12. Mai 2014
Von pattrice jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'd been eagerly anticipating the release of this book, and it doesn't disappoint. I'm always curious to know what ecofeminist philosopher Lori Gruen is thinking about, and you should be too. Here she has gathered scholars and activists from truly varied vantage points and invied them to think closely about captivity from their standpoints. Contributors include not only adept academicians but also a former political prisoner as well as activists who work to abolish prisons or liberate animals. One contributor writes from an animal sanctuary while others write from the prison in which they are currently incarcerated. All have something unique to say that we, who are living in an age of unprecedented lock-down, need to read and heed.

HASH(0x8bc8ae4c) von 5 Sternen An incredible collection, essential reading 11. Oktober 2014
Von Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a remarkable accomplishment. Lori Gruen consistently takes the time to think about issues that most people would prefer not to think about. In this collection, a variety of philosophers take on the complex issue of captivity in both humans and animals. The essay from human prisoners currently incarcerated is one of the standouts. Other fantastic essays include Gruen's own piece on dignity and an ethics of sight, as well as pieces on dog captivity and the ethics of controlling the cat population.

In short, this collection is incredible and is essential reading for anyone at all concerned with ethics. Really though, by giving these prisoners and activists a voice, Gruen is doing an important service for us all. Buy this book!

HASH(0x8b91b348) von 5 Sternen Wonderful. Comprehensive 18. November 2014
Von John Forge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Wonderful. Comprehensive. Thought-provoking.
This is a book that will only become more important. The book is an interdisciplinary meditation on the ethical ramifications of keeping animals (both human and non-human animals) in cages. The sheer mass of animals currently in cages is staggering and speaks to the dire need of literature on the subject.
Someone must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Lori Gruen not only speaks but shouts.

HASH(0x8bc8cabc) von 5 Sternen I had to read it for my Enviornmental Ethics class which I loved but this book only gives examples of America's captivity 25. Juni 2016
Von Deborah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was really disapointed with this book. I had to read it for my Enviornmental Ethics class which I loved but this book only gives examples of America's captivity, instead of talking about this topic in a more international perspective.
