Bernd Ladwig: Politische Philosophie der Mensch-Tier-Beziehungen. Eine kritische Literaturschau

Abstract

Political Philosophy of Human-Animal-Relations. A critical review of recent literature
As of now, Human-Animal-Relations are not yet one of political philosophy’s central topics. Political
philosophy can be described as anthropocentric in three ways: Only human fate is considered
when defining the common good; only humans are viewed as equal members of any given polity;
only humans are considered as political actors. In contrast, this article reviews recent works, that
challenge the anthropocentric notion in at least one of the three aforementioned aspects. They either
relate to the well-being of animals as an important pillar of common good definitions or focus on
polities as species-transcending communities, arguing for a full membership of animals in today’s
societies or even considering animals as political actors in their own right.
