I received a grant that enabled me to work on and complete an open access introductory (text)book entitled Animals & Ethics 101: Thinking Critically About Animal Rights (Open Philosophy Press, 2016). This globally and freely available e-book, and low cost paperback, introduces the main philosophical arguments about animal rights, including Tom Regan’s arguments, and their implications for practical concerns about the treatment of animals. The book grew out of a course that used Professor Regan’s Empty Cages: Facing the Challenge of Animal Rights, and other writings, as primary readings. I am currently working on a general introductory ethics text, Making Moral Progress: An Ethical Arguments Workbook, that is in some ways a new attempt at engaging the issues of Regan’s classic 1992 collection Matters of Life and Death: New Introductory Essays in Moral Philosophy.
