Abstract

In Part III, I first want to examine various arguments in support of the claim that suitably reformed farming practices that lead to the eventual slaughter of animals for food consumption are, nevertheless, a fair deal for the animals involved. There are several versions of this argument and I want to look at them in Chapter 16. Then I will try to develop a general theory of what moral obligations we have to animal in the various contexts in which we have relationships with them. This I will do in Chapter 17.
