The moral status of animals in the International Encyclopedia of Ethics

An ambitious collective work on ethics, the International Encyclopedia of Ethics, which has been edited under the supervision of Hugh LaFollette, has been recently published by Wiley. Some of its entries are available online. I have written an entry for this encyclopedia, which you can read and download here:

Moral Status of Animals

The encyclopedia also includes several other entries on issues having to do with nonhuman animals, as well as on other topics closely related.
