Description du produit

Revue de presse

"It galvanised a generation into action. Groups sprang up around the world, equipped with a new vocabulary, a new set of ethics and a new sense of mission...Singer's book is widely known as the bible of the animal liberation movement." (Independent on Sunday)

"A reasoned plea for the humane treatment of animals that galvanised the animal-rights movement the way the Rachel Carson's Silent Spring drew activists to environmentalism." (New York Times)

"Important and responsible...Everyone ought to read it." (Richard Adams)

"Probably the single most influential document in the history of recent movements concerned with animal welfare" (Guardian)

"In my mind, it is one the most important books of the last 100 years. It expands our moral horizons beyond our own species and is thereby a major evolution in ethics" (Peter Tatchell Ecologist) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

How should we treat non-human animals?

In this immensely powerful and influential book, Peter Singer addresses this simple question with trenchant, dispassionate reasoning. Accompanied by the disturbing evidence of factory farms and laboratories, his answers triggered the birth of the animal rights movement.

In the decades since this landmark classic first appeared, some public attitudes to animals may have changed but our continued abuse of animals in factory farms and as tools for research shows that the underlying ideas Singer exposes as ethically indefensible are still dominating the way we treat animals. As Yuval Noah Harari’s brilliantly argued preface makes clear, this book is as relevant now as the day it was written. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I recommend it to anyone who is weighing that choice 29 novembre 2015
Par Julie Sloane - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is just as relevant today as when it was first written, and reading it confirms ands supports my personal decision to become a vegetarian/vegan. I recommend it to anyone who is weighing that choice. However, it should come with a trigger warning. Our cruelty to animals on the farm and in our laboratories is depicted in vivid detail, and what I learned from reading it will stay with me forever.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best cases for vegetarianism 27 janvier 2016
Par J Edens - Publié sur

I read this book nearly 40 years ago and became a vegetarian because of it. Singer, a philosopher, writes clearly and effectively. Today the public knows more about factory farming and experimentation on animals, largely, I think, because of this book's influence. Yet he understands that for some people becoming completely vegetarian may prove too daunting, so he says to do as much as you can. He isn't strident.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good book to give as a gift to everyone you care about... 6 janvier 2013

After watching "Earthlings" almost 2 years ago while I was browsing for videos on YouTube - it had changed my life completely, since that day. Those who read this book and would like to "see" more about factory farming and how we treat animals, should definitely check out "Earthlings" - it's free online.

I enjoy this book greatly. I am not going to discuss about the book because I believe there had already been many reviewers on here who did an excellent job on writing about it. I am really glad, however, that a modern philosopher, like Singer, took great interests in ending animals suffering and believe it firmly to write such an excellent book. It is really difficult personally, for me to "persuade" others to re-consider the way they consume meat daily. I took me almost 2 years to persuade my husband to watch "Earthings" because he, like many other people that I know of, said: "I don't want to watch it....I like to eat meat and I like the freedom to choose whatever I want to eat...." I have heard this response many time from many people who will not change or reconsider the way they consume meat. The bottom line is, they only care about their individual "right"; to eat whatever they choose because they think they are entitled to. It is sad, but it also happens to the most dedicated, religious people whom I've known.

My hope is for Singer and many other writers to continue to deliver this important message to the mass - ending animals suffering and to learn how to be a compassionate human being.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extremely clear and persuasive 22 avril 2012
Par Eliot Cooper - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Singer writes in a remarkably clear manner. I am fairly new to the philosophy genre and found this book very easy to get into. Singer does not use any complicated terms so it is always clear what is going on. In terms of Singer's argument, from what I can tell it is air tight. Effectively he argues that animals feel pain-- some more than others-- and therefore we must admit that they have concerns.

This is a classic text in the animal liberation movement. If you are new to animal rights, this book will broaden your perspective. If you're already well versed in the animal rights literature then you probably won't get too much additional information from this book simply because this book is the foundation of many others on this subject. Still, I enjoyed the read, and recommend it highly!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Difficult to read for the gentle-hearted, but still, you must read. This book gives us the words to combat animal cruelty. 4 novembre 2013

It is a profound experience, following the arguments brought forth in this book. It is easy to follow, and irrefutable logic. I knew these truths in my heart, but Peter Singer puts it into words.
