The rights of animals and the demands of nature

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    This paper discusses two central themes of the work of Alan Holland: the relations between the natural and the normative and how our duties regarding animals cohere with our obligations to respect nature. I explicate and defend an anti-speciesist argument that entails strong moral demands on how we should live and what we should eat. I conclude by discussing the implications of antispeciesism for rewilding and reintroduction programmes.
