Description

Thomas Young's Essay on Humanity to Animals, along with Rod Preece's Introduction and Notes, will be a valuable addition to the Mellen Animal Rights Library. The Essays historical importance is equaled, if not surpassed, by its analytical merits. Young express position on human uses of non-human animals is not as radical as that of contemporary animal rights advocates. As Dr. Preece ably explains, Young's ethic most closely resembles that of current animal welfare science.
