Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

In this careful, thoughtful, and engaging work, Sue Donaldson and Will Kymlicka affirm and extend the attribution of rights to animals. ... The book is thoroughly researched and engages a lot of literature about animals, both philosophical and sociological (Ruth Abbey, Philosophy in Review)

convincing both in its criticism of existing animal rights theories and as the outline of a political theory...an important and original contribution to the debate about animal rights. (Eva Meijer, Journal for Contemporary Philosophy)

Zoopolis presents a meticulously principled, thorough- and maybe, hopefully, even realistic- theory, which in many ways improves upon preexisting theories of animal rights. (Nina Varsava, Humanimalia)

Donaldson and Kymlicka's contribution builds upon attempts by others to extend justice to non-human animals in an original and compelling manner. They convincingly demonstrate that theories of animal rights lacking a political component are inadequate, and that traditional citizenship theory wrongly excludes many potential coauthors in the destiny of democratic communities. (Steve Cooke, Global Policy)

will take the debate about the limits of liberal citizenship into radical new areas...Zoopolis breaks new ground by looking at animal rights from a genuinely political perspective. It's deliciously contentious thesis will force liberal political theorists to look much harder at the boundaries of citizenship. (Daniel Hutton Ferris, Politicsinspires.org)

Zoopolis is an amazing book, which proposes to reframe the debate on our relationship with animals in a new theoretical framework. (Marta Tafalla, Diánoia)

a remarkable landmark in the animal rights debate. Like what Nozick said of Rawls's A Theory of Justice, it would seem that animal rights theorists must either work within the theory put forward by Zoopolis or explain why not. (Tristan Rogers, Journal of Value Enquiry)

fascinating and path-breaking...there is a huge amount to commend in this rich and novel theory.. Zoopolis is a major contribution to both animal ethics and political philosophy, and will provide much interesting debate. (Alasdair Cochrane, The Philosopher's Magazine)

eloquent and extremely thought-provoking... astonishingly free of sentimentality while still brimming with passion... Books like this - meticulously thought-out, very attractively reasoned, with no hint of screed - do inestimable good in their incremental way, and Zoopolis is among the best I've ever read, mainly because it avoids the pitfalls of extremism that would make it look untenable to the unconverted. (Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly)

deeply serious and brilliantly written... Zoopolis is in fact a courageous book and an intellectual tour de force. It is the most important philosophical work on human-animal relationships since Singer's Animal Liberation... an inspiration to those people who want to change how humans treat animals. (Richard Keshen, Literary Review of Canada)

An always engaging, often persuasive mix of the particular and general, leavening and defending the more abstract claims with choice case studies (Christopher Belshaw, Times Higher Education)

Eloquent and extremely thought-provoking ... astonishingly free of sentimentality while still brimming with passion. (Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly)

deeply serious and brilliantly written ... Zoopolis is in fact a courageous book and an intellectual tour de force. It is the most important philosophical work on human-animal relationships since Singer's Animal Liberation ... an inspiration to those people who want to change how humans treat animals (Richard Keshen, Literary Review of Canada)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Zoopolis offers a new agenda for the theory and practice of animal rights. Most animal rights theory focuses on the intrinsic capacities or interests of animals, and the moral status and moral rights that these intrinsic characteristics give rise to. Zoopolis shifts the debate from the realm of moral theory and applied ethics to the realm of political theory, focusing on the relational obligations that arise from the varied ways that animals relate to human societies and institutions. Building on recent developments in the political theory of group-differentiated citizenship, Zoopolis introduces us to the genuine "political animal". It argues that different types of animals stand in different relationships to human political communities. Domesticated animals should be seen as full members of human-animal mixed communities, participating in the cooperative project of shared citizenship. Wilderness animals, by contrast, form their own sovereign communities entitled to protection against colonization, invasion, domination and other threats to self-determination. `Liminal' animals who are wild but live in the midst of human settlement (such as crows or raccoons) should be seen as "denizens", resident of our societies, but not fully included in rights and responsibilities of citizenship. To all of these animals we owe respect for their basic inviolable rights. But we inevitably and appropriately have very different relations with them, with different types of obligations. Humans and animals are inextricably bound in a complex web of relationships, and Zoopolis offers an original and profoundly affirmative vision of how to ground this complex web of relations on principles of justice and compassion.

Insightful Book 1 décembre 2012
Par Anna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book was a required text for one of my political science courses. I thought the author discussed some thoughtful arguments on the topic of animal rights and citizenship. Though I do no agree with the author completely, this is a good text to review and it gave me some new perspectives on the treatment of animals, especially domesticated animals.
Brilliant new perspective on the Animal RIghts debate. 13 novembre 2013
Par MathaelTheDestroyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is an astounding new perspective on animal rights. It explains in clear, concise language why animals deserve not only negative rights (e.g. being free from harm and exploitation) but also positive rights (e.g. basic statuses of citizenship for domesticated animals). While not entirely convinced of their arguments regarding wild and liminal animals, this book genuinely changed my perspective on the status of domesticated animals and how we ought to treat them in a way that hasn't happened since I read Animal Liberation. This book is good for the quiet it's-my-choice vegan and the outspoken abolitionist alike. Highly recommended.

This book makes a unique and needed contribution to the animal rights movement. I found it extremely well thought out in terms of providing a roadmap and vision of a world where we humans incorporate other animals into our political sphere of concern in sharing the earth together. It is well worth reading.
