AbstractThis book begins with a brief introduction with a chapter explaining the main types of ethical theory as distinguished by philosophers and how they have been applied to the issue of the moral status of animals. The following sixteen chapters discuss different controversies that emerge over the use of animals in scientific research and case studies that have brought these controversies into public discourse. The driving question asked when looking at each case studies is, how far is it morally justifiable to harm animals for the benefit of mankind.
