The Law and the Factory

(p.202) Afterword The Law and the Factory
The Animal Claim

Tobias Menely

University of Chicago Press

The afterword returns to an enigma of biopolitical modernity: that commensurate with the extension of animal rights, in the form of animal welfare laws, has been a radical intensification of the exploitation of animal bodies under agro-capitalism. Any post-humanist theory of justice, it argues, will return, not to the language of sensibility, but to the necessity of accounting for the communicative conditions in which we finds ourselves answerable to the clamor of other beings who, like ourselves, are passionate and finite.

Keywords:   animal rights, positive law, advocacy, biopolitics, capitalism, communication
