Animals can't construct sentences. Therefore we can eat them. That was the view the Stoics eventually settled for, though they began with Aristotle's much broader claim that animals lack reason.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Animals can t construct sentences. Therefore we can eat them. That was the view the Stoics eventually settled for, though they began with Aristotle s much broader claim that animals lack reason. In this book, the author argues that the Western tradition has been rather complacent. St Augustine incorporated the Stoic view into Christianity, but in doing so he took up only half the ancient debate, for there were many philosophers who defended animals. The controversy affected the whole of the philosophy of mind, because if animals are denied reason and belief, we have to redefine not only reason and belief, but perception, emotion, intention, moral responsibility, memory, speech and the power to conceptualize. Sorabji argues that a broader view of ethics is needed than is found either in the ancient opponents of animals, or in their modern defenders. Seller Inventory # AAV9780715627280
