|Title:||On Responsible Knowledge Making and the Moral Standing of Animals: Questioning What Matters and Why about Animal Minds||Contributor(s):||McLean, Lesley (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2111||Abstract:||One of the long-standing presuppositions of moral theory about animals is that our moral relations with them depend on our sharing some fundamental characteristic or capacity. Daniel Dennett's influential paper, 'Animal Consciousness: What Matters and Why' (1995) is a good example of how philosophers might go on in discussions that takes seriously this kind of reasoning as well as a comment on what responsible knowledge making amounts to in relation to it. In this paper my aim is to question this kind of theorizing and suggest another way that philosophers might approach the animal question.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Between the Species: An Online Journal for the Study of Philosophy and Animals (VII ), p. 1-14||Publisher:||California Polytechnic State University||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1945-8487||Field of Research (FOR):||220101 Bioethics (human and animal)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an43500638
