Author’s Summary (Conclusion)
Footnote 1: Presumably because animals cannot sign. But there could be a one-sided contract.
Footnote 2: This – while OK as far as it goes – does nothing to respect animals in themselves.
Footnote 3: I agree. What has Carruthers to say in response to this?
Footnote 4: I bet. Philosophical ethics just seems to be a way of intellectualising one’s prejudices.
