The Thee Generation: Reflections On The Coming Revolution

The Thee Generation: Reflections On The Coming Revolution

by Tom Regan

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book comprises four essays previously published roughly as presented here and four recent lectures newly published--all on moral questions. Regan believes that the questions have correct answers and that it is important to see why they are correct. All the essays concern the boundaries of the moral community, e.g., whether we have moral obligations toward nonhuman animals or special moral obligations toward children, etc. Regan believes that people are coming to see themselves as members of a life community to which they owe respect and concern. He examines both theoretical and practical matters, e.g., the nature of inherent value, child pornography, people as caretakers of the biosphere, etc. He writes clearly and sensitively, and his book deserves to be widely read.-- Robert Hoffman, York Coll., CUNY
