Proximity: A Levinasian Approach to Justice for Animals

  • Søren Stig Andersen

Abstract

The increased use of terms associated with rights appears to have led, at the most, to only moderate changes with regard to the actual level of protection and the underlying ethical-legal status of animals. Whereas the rights discourse may have been a logical first step, there appears to be underlying issues that cannot be adequately addressed through this discourse.
