Exploring how animal suffering is made meaningful within Western ramifications, the book investigates themes such as skepticism concerning non-human experience, cultural roots of compassion, and contemporary approaches to animal ethics. At its center is the pivotal question: What is the moral significance of animal suffering?
ELISA AALTOLA is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Eastern Finland. She has been researching the theoretical ramifications behind, and practical implications of, the moral status of non-human animals for a number of years and has previously published two Finnish books on animal ethics.
