From the Publisher"Blending new voices with more familiar ones, The Ethics of Animal Research breathes new life into an old debate. Jeremy Garrett has shown that it is possible to move beyond polemics and have a productive exchange of ideas about the ethics of using animals in research."—Peter Singer, Ira W. Decamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values, Princeton University
"This is a critically needed resource for students, professionals in science and ethics, and the general public. Jeremy Garrett provides an exceptionally helpful framing of the issues and a rich selection of new work that will expand and elevate the debate in heartening ways.
By illuminating empirical, epistemological, and moral dimensions of the problem, developing alternatives to classical approaches, envisioning ideal practices, and suggesting ways to pursue them, the volume paves the way for vastly more meaningful dialogue: itself an important form of moral progress."—Kathie Jenni, Professor of Philosophy and Director of Human-Animal Studies, University of Redlands
"Current and future animal researchers need to know what leading philosophers and bioethicists are saying about animals used in research. The works collected in The Ethics of Animal Research provide insights for new discourse, classroom discussion, and intellectual pursuits. If the positions contained within do not spark balanced discussion, some freedoms may become extinct."—Mark E. Cook, Professor of Animal Sciences,University of Wisconsin-Madison
"This collection brings together a few older articles with mostly new ones. Readers are asked to grapple with the ethical as well as epistemological challenges posed by using other animals in distressful, usually painful, and often fatal scientific research. It offers insightful discussions that represent a range of views on this controversial subject and will be particularly valuable for students in the sciences as well as in philosophy courses."—Lori Gruen, author of Ethics and Animals: An Introduction
