Crary’s book is an exciting and original contribution to moral philosophy and to philosophical thinking about a range of issues in philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and philosophy of language. It should be of great interest also to those working in disability studies and animal studies.—Cora Diamond, University of Virginia

This book is a sustained attempt to argue in favor of the claim that human and non-human animals alike are intrinsically ethically significant things, and in particular not beings whose ethical significance is a function of the ethical significance of some given set of attributes or capacities or interests they happen to possess. Anyone working on these topics will be obliged to take account of Crary’s distinctive contribution to current conversations, within and without philosophy, about the moral status of human beings and their fellow creatures.—Stephen Mulhall, University of Oxford
