Volume 15, Issue 1 (2012) Special Issue

This issue and the next of Between the Species are the first “special issues” in the history of the journal. Both comprise selected peer-reviewed papers from interdisciplinary conferences. Whereas questions about animal ethics have been investigated by philosophers for many years, the emerging field of Animal Studies brings philosophers into dialogue with scholars from other fields such as the sciences, law, sociology, veterinary medicine, and others. This issue arises from a conference at Macquarie University entitled “Testing Times: A Symposium on the Ethics and Epistemology of Animal Experimentation.” While Between the Species continues to be primarily a philosophical journal, we both acknowledge and welcome these fruitful cross-disciplinary discussions about animals, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to publish them.
