Tried posting this earlier to-day, but it seems there was a bug infestation!!!


Anyway, I just want to draw attention to a book which I came across recently. Seems interesting, although I have only skimmed it so far. It´s bookmarked for later!

According to what I have seen, Miller presents a detailed account of the human relation to nonhuman animals in terms of the three themes (responsibility, caring and nearness) and makes an ethical case for responsibility towards animals founded upon an understanding of the animal as neighbour.

It´s available in thesis form as a free download. It´s also available in print.
