Volume 19, Issue 1 (2016)We are delighted to be making available the largest issue of Between the Species to this point. The range of discussion is quite broad as well. There are three very fine articles that in very different ways deal with the ethics of human consumption of animal products. Two articles explore more social and political aspects of the animal issue, the implications of egalitarianism for animals, and a defense an animal welfare state. In addition, we have an interesting critical analysis of a particular way of defending animal experimentation. The challenging ethical problems of “rewilding” animals are examined in another excellent essay. This issue also includes five book reviews on recently published works related to animals and philosophy, as well as a poem. We have many new books available to be reviewed. If interested, please take a look at our ‘Books Received’ page.
