Overview

Ethics relates to the well-being of conscious beings. Once we admit this, one of the most fundamental and important questions we must ask ourselves is: who are the conscious beings? Who are the beings we should have moral concern for?
This short book aims to provide a reasonable answer to this question, and to make a brief examination of some of the most basic ethical implications of this answer.
The conclusion in short: Once again, we humans need to realize that we are not the center of everything. We need to realize that humanity is not the sole object of ethics, and to acknowledge the moral significance of non-human animals. We need a Copernican Revolution in ethics.
