About the Author

Lori Gruen is William Griffin Professor of Philosophy at Wesleyan University. She is author and editor of eleven books, including The Ethics of Captivity (2014), Entangled Empathy (2015), and Critical Terms for Animal Studies (2018).


'Ethics and Animals is a wonderfully readable introduction to the range of issues that come under that heading. Lori Gruen is not only a fine philosopher, but also a person with genuine empathy for animals, and the ability to express that in writing.' Peter Singer, Princeton University and University of Melbourne
'If you only read one book about animal ethics, this should be the one. Simultaneously broad and deep, accessible and engaging, Ethics and Animals will help you think through the multiplicity of ways that people have tried to justify using animals, and importantly, raises crucial challenges to those justifications. This book will help you think better about human relationships with animals.' Pattrice Jones, Co-founder of VINE Sanctuary
