review Animal Liberation ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub E solutions to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue An important and persuasive appeal to conscience fairness decency and justice Animal Liberation is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic ali Normally I won t review nonfiction since most of the time I don t even give them a star rating However there a few exceptions First of all I may end up reviewing some memoirs since I consider a good memoir to be a blend of fiction and nonfiction think James Frey here but also less sinister examples So my major exception will be this book I feel okay with reviewing this book because I do have a philosophy degree and also because this book had a major impact on me at a fairly young age When I was a young whippersnapper of 20 I read a brief essay by the controversial Australian philosopher Peter Singer in the Sunday New York Times magazine this was a around the time of his protested appointment as Bioethics Professor at Princeton about poverty and the choices we make in the West The piece was simple it was straightforward and it was brilliant He argued that we need to do to help those who are starving and dying not a revolutionary concept but certainly one that has yet to catch on but he did so by drawing specific analogies of behavior which we would consider grossly unethical not stepping into mud to save a drowning child for fear of ruining a pair of 200 pants with behavior that we consider perfectly acceptable buying 200 pants when that same money could dig a well or a send a child to school for a year if spent elsewhere The only difference between the two being distance The only reason one is unacceptable is because we are face to face with it But how does mere distance alter the ethical demands he asks It shouldn t of course is the answer This piece moved me in a direct way and it helped to shape my decision to pursue a philosophy degree a decision which my bank account laments but my brain appreciates But perhaps even changing was the brief bio at the end of the piece which read something to the effect of Peter Singer is the author of the seminal 1975 work Animal Liberation which posits that non human animals should be treated on the same ethical plain as humans As a young man on the Canadian prairies this idea was a bit new to me but it also felt right I often thought that I would one day stop eating meat I enjoyed the taste but something did seem not uite right and so I took this book out of the library A week later I ate my last piece of meat thanksgiving dinner and that was seven years ago returnThe book follows a similar plan to the brief piece I read in the New York Times which was called simply Rich and Poor and was the same abridged version of Famine Affluence and Morality also appeared in his book Practical Ethics It uses simple analogies based on ethical norms that we already accept and he broadens them to include new norms that are currently rejected In Animal Liberation one of the key arguments is that our sense of the ethical world needs to be broadened to include non human animals and that we need to redraw the bounds based on sentience roughly the ability to feel pain rather than on perceived intelligence or rationality I am restraining myself from trying to mention some of his arguments here as they are powerful and to the point but I would only get bogged down in the finer points and be overly concerned that I was giving Mr Singer a fair representation also I run the risk of looking like a moron if I miss or misinterpret something So read the book if you want to hear the points and I encourage you to do so He writes with a clarity and simplicity that makes it an easy though not light read This is an accessible book written for the masses and reuires no philosophical background to comprehend All it takes is an open inuiring mind So give it a chance if you care at all about living an ethical life It may seem like it is impossible to do everything good and that there are so many terrible and tempting things in the world that it you can t avoid them all but that does not mean you shouldn t do anything Reading this book is a good place to start

review ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub × Peter Singer

review Animal Liberation ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub The cruel and unnecessary laboratory animal experimentation of years past In this newly revised and expanded edition author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's factory forms and product testing procedures offering sound human Peter Singer builds a step by step iron clad ethical case for considering the welfare of animals as part of our ever expanding circle of moral consideration While non human animals may not be our euals in many respects the only thing that really matters is their shared ability to experience pain and suffering Any attempt to draw a line between what makes humans worthy of consideration and non human animals not worthy of consideration fails in establishing any kind of logical distinction If we are to include all humans as having the right to avoid suffering then that includes many developmentally disabled humans that are exceeded in their capacities by many non humansSinger establishes these ethical foundations and then examines at length the use of animals in laboratory experiments and in factory farming While he outlines some of the other areas in which our interests conflict with those of animals these are the two he focuses on for the greater balance of the book While at times I suspected that his extrapolations on figures and facts should be treated as speculations he does present them as such the underlying logic is well defended An account is given also of the progression of Western thought about animals and interaction with animals While necessarily brief and not all inclusive it helps to paint the broad canvas of humanity s inhumanity to non humans as well as the progress of animal advocacy and consciousness raisingAnother significant aim of the book is to encourage a vegetarian diet As a life long meat eater this was incredibly important for me to read For if these ethical implications are true they are then one must take a vegetarian and even a vegan diet seriously into consideration in order to be morally and ethically consistent Singer does not create this as a black and white proposition he explores the potential situations in which meat eating could be ethical and the spectrum of consideration that corresponds to relative degrees of suffering He also addresses dietary concerns social impact and the language and practice of speciesism I found his treatment nuanced and thought provoking Spoiler the only potential nutrient a vegan needs to be concerned about lacking is vitamin B12 which can be had via supplementsI d already heard these arguments through various other sources and as a result have made efforts to reduce my meat consumption over the past 11 months that I have been monitoring it I admit it has not been easy for me nor a clean break but Animal Liberation has renewed my commitment to strive for a diet that is consistent with my morals
