Würde des Menschen - Würde des Tiers?

Zum Verhältnis von Mensch und Tier aus der Perspektive der Rechtsphilosophie


Abstract from the author

Portrait des AutorsThe issue of human dignity and ethical relevance of animals in matters of the philosophy of law is analyzed by criticism of the most common theories of animal rights as well as of anthropocentrism. Current argumentation schemes are questioned concerning their conclusiveness. Admitting the continuity of evolution and ethical relevance of animals, an essential difference between human and animal dignity is pointed out: an social and intersubjective aspect of attribution of moral reflection. Intermediary between the both extremes a simple but fundamental idea on behalf of ethical animal matters is developed and briefly applied to law issues.
