In Beyond Animal Rights, Josephine Donovan and Carol J. Adams introduced feminist "ethic of care" theory into contemporary philosophical discussions concerning the ethical treatment of animals. In this revised edition of the volume, seven essays from the original book are joined by nine new articles-most of which were written in response to Beyond Animal Rights-and a new introduction that situates feminist-animal-care theory within feminist theory and the larger debate over animal rights. Contributors critique theorists' reliance on natural-rights doctrine and utilitarianism, which, they suggest, have a masculine bias. They argue for humility and sympathy in our relationships with animals and establish a link between the continuing subjugation of women and the human domination of nature. Beginning with the earliest articulation of the idea in the mid-1980s and continuing to the theory's most recent revisions, this volume presents the most complete portrait of the evolution of the feminist-care tradition., reviewing a previous edition or volume
