Environmental Values

The Rights of Animals and the Demands of Nature

Dale Jamieson

Environmental Values 17(2008): 181-199. doi: 10.3197/096327108X303846

ABSTRACT

This paper discusses two central themes of the work of Alan Holland: the relations between the natural and the normative and how our duties regarding animals cohere with our obligations to respect nature. I explicate and defend an anti-speciesist argument that entails strong moral demands on how we should live and what we should eat. I conclude by discussing the implications of anti-speciesism for rewilding and reintroduction programmes.
