Response to “The Problem of the Question About Animal Ethics” by Michal Piekarski

Authors/others:Coeckelbergh, Mark; Gunkel, David J. (Northern Illinois University)
Abstract:In this brief article we reply to Michal Piekarski’s response to our article ‘Facing Animals’ published previously in this journal. In our article we criticized the properties approach to defining the moral standing of animals, and in its place proposed a relational and other-oriented concept that is based on a transcendental and phenomenological perspective, mainly inspired by Heidegger, Levinas, and Derrida. In this reply we question and problematize Piekarski’s interpretation of our essay and critically evaluate “the ethics of commitment” that he offers as an alternative.
