Inhaltsangabe: Book by Ryder Richard D

Críticas: "Speciesism is a prejudice like racism or sexism, only applied to our attitude to other animals. It sees humans as superior to all other species, and it sees glamorous rare animals as superior to common ones. But to the zoologist every living species is the fascinating end-point of millions of years of evolution and deserves our respect. I care as much about pigeons as I do about pandas, as much about sparrows as I do about sperm whales." "Painism" is not a little different. Ryder fashioned this one more recently, and it names his home-grown moral theory. There's a lot of ambition here. Painism is said to be the account the modern world needs. It "challenges utilitarianism and democracy," improves on its main rivals, creates "a fresh and unified moral outlook." Times Higher Education.--Desmond Morris

"He argues that moral principles and ideals such as justice, freedom and equality, for example, are "mere stepping stones to the ultimate good, which is happiness: and happiness is made easier by freedom from all forms of pain and suffering."--Kailah Eglington "Resurgence "

"Speciesism, Painism and Happiness is charming and provocative, an enjoyable, stimulating, and memorable companion [T]he reader never doubts that he is reading a book about morality written by someone who knows what morality is about."--Steve F. Sapontzis "Journal of Animal Ethics, Vol. 4 (1) ""
