From the Publisher"In veterinary and animal science, the concepts "welfare", "well-being" and "quality of life" have been applied to animals in a bewildering variety of ways. In this book, Lennart Nordenfelt makes a careful and thoughtful analysis of these concepts, based on a thorough reading of the veterinary and animal science literature combined with his own deep understanding of the parallel debates in the human health field. His analysis moves a cluttered and conflicted topic onto a higher plane. Nordenfelt is a philosopher who writes in a clear, unpretentious style that makes the book easily accessible to scientific readers. He has made a valuable contribution to the veterinary and animal sciences."
"Essential reading for those working in the fields of animal welfare research and for veterinarians involved with animal welfare policy."
