Postmodern Ethics, the Question of the Animal, and the Imperatives of Posthumanist Theory
This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on animal rights or the question of the animal. It suggests that we should be nondiscriminatory with regard to species in recognizing the characteristics and potentialities that are widely agreed to constitute the subject of a life. This chapter also highlights the problem in approaching the question of ethics and animals in purely pragmatic or immanent terms. It also discusses postmodern ethics, the imperatives of posthumanist theory and the Great Ape Project or the revision and upgrading of the United States Animal Welfare Act.
