About this product
- DescriptionMost approaches to animal ethics ground the moral standing of nhumans in some appeal to their capacities for intelligent automy or mental sentience. Corporal Compassion emphasizes the phemenal and somatic commonality of living beings; a philosophy of body that seeks to displace any tion of anthropomorphic empathy in viewing the moral experiences of nhuman living beings. Ralph R. Acampora employs phemelogy, hermeneutics, existentialism and deconstruction to connect and contest analytic treatments of animal rights and liberation theory. In doing so, he focuses on issues of being and value, and posits a felt nexus of bodily being, termed symphysis, to devise an interspecies ethos. Acampora uses this broad-based bioethic to engage in dialogue with other strains of environmental ethics and ecophilosophy. Corporal Compassion examines the practical applications of the somatic ethos in contexts such as laboratory experimentation and zoological exhibition and challenges practitioners to move past recent reforms and look to a future beyond exploitation or total ninterference - a posthumanist culture that advocates caring in a participatory approach.
