Strangers to Nature seeks to challenge a reading public that has grown complacent with the standard framework of the animal ethics debate. Because human influence on and control of the natural world is having greater consequences than ever before, the human impact on the lives of animals has become more evident. We cannot properly interrogate our conduct in the world without a deeper understanding of how our actions affect animals. Therefore, it is crucial that the human-animal relationship become more central to ethical inquiry. This volume brings together many of the leading scholars who are working to redefine and expand the discourse on animal ethics. The contributors examine the radical developments that are changing how we think about the status of non-human animals in our society and our moral obligations. Strangers to Nature will engage both scholars and lay-people by revealing the breadth of theorizing about the human/non-human animal relationship that is currently taking place.
