Animals Matter: A Biologist Explains Why We Should Treat Animals with Compassion and Respect
(2007)
  • Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado Boulder
Abstract
Nonhuman animals have many of the same feelings we do. They get hurt, they suffer, they are happy, and they take care of each other. Marc Bekoff, a renowned biologist and Guggenheim Fellow at the University of Colorado in Boulder, guides readers in looking at scientific research, philosophical ideas, and humane values that argue for the ethical and compassionate treatment of animals. Citing the latest scientific studies and tackling controversies with conviction, he zeroes in on the important questions, inviting reader participation with "thought experiments" and ideas for action. Bekoff urges us not only to understand and protect animals - but to love and respect them as our fellow beings on this planet that we all want to share in peace.
