Synopsis:

Most approaches to animal ethics ground the moral standing of nonhumans in some appeal to their capacities for intelligent autonomy or mental sentience. Corporal Compassion emphasizes the phenomenal and somatic commonality of living beings; a philosophy of body that seeks to displace any notion of anthropomorphic empathy in viewing the moral experiences of nonhuman living beings. Ralph R. Acampora employs phenomenology, hermeneutics, existentialism and deconstruction to connect and contest analytic treatments of animal rights and liberation theory. In doing so, he focuses on issues of being and value, and posits a felt nexus of bodily being, termed symphysis, to devise an interspecies ethos. Acampora uses this broad-based bioethic to engage in dialogue with other strains of environmental ethics and ecophilosophy.

Corporal Compassion examines the practical applications of the somatic ethos in contexts such as laboratory experimentation and zoological exhibition and challenges practitioners to move past recent reforms and look to a future beyond exploitation or total noninterference--a posthumanist culture that advocates caring in a participatory approach.

From the Back Cover: "An excellent study that opens up an innovative approach to animal ethics, based in an interspecies morality of compassion. A corporeal phenomenology of affective relations is deployed to avoid anthropocentric, cognitive, and theoretical biases that ignore bodily experience and our animality shared with other species. Particularly noteworthy is the wide variety of topics, sources, and cross-disciplinary research, as well as fruitful exchanges between analytic, continental, and feminist perspectives. This is the finest text I have read on the subject." --Lawrence J. Hatab, Old Dominion University

"A highly original and timely account of the foundation of animal ethics. Acampora locates this foundation, via a phenomenology of human-animal relations, in a shared bodily kinship and compassion between human beings and animals. Acampora provides not only a sorely needed corrective to the overly abstract and intellectualist tendencies of contemporary animal rights discourse, but brings the reader back to one of the central moral questions concerning other animals: What gives rise to a sense of human responsibility to and for animals, and what is at stake in the claim that other animals have on us? Readers from both the analytic and Continental philosophical traditions will welcome this novel contribution to animal ethics." --Matthew Calarco, Sweet Briar College
