Why Animal Suffering Matters by Andrew Linzey

Joel Marks finds Andrew Linzey being kind to animals.

Andrew Linzey is a member of the theology faculty at Oxford and founding director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics. He is a prolific and pioneering author and editor of many books about animal ethics (among other topics), particularly from a Christian perspective but also from a purely moral one. His most recent is Why Animal Suffering Matters (Oxford University Press, 2009), which brings together and up to date a set of papers and lectures. It is intended as a kind of primer with case studies. The book is excellently done, at least at ‘tree level’, with exhaustive scholarship, meticulous argumentation, and clear organization, making it very suitable as a textbook.
