This introductory chapter discusses the coverage of this volume about animal rights. This volume analyzes Luc Ferry's “New Ecological Order” which provides a textbook example of contemporary humanist philosophy's attempt to address the challenge of ecology and animal rights and Ludwig Wittgenstein's aphorism “If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.” It also analyzes Jonathan Demme's film “The Silence of the Lambs,” the relevant works of Ernest Hemingway and the special discourse in Michael Crichton's novel “Congo.”
