“Wild Animal Ethics: A Freedom-Based Approach”

Nouvel article d’Eze Paez, intitulé “Wild Animal Ethics: A Freedom-Based Approach“, paru dans Ethics, Policy, & Environment.


On expectation, most wild animals have lives of net suffering due to naturogenic causes. Some have claimed that concern for their well-being gives us reasons to intervene in nature on their behalf. Against this, it has been said that many interventions to assist wild animals would be wrong, even if successful, because they would violate their freedom. According to the Freedom-based Approach I defend in this paper, this view is misguided. Concern for wild animal freedom does indeed gives us reasons to secure these animals against control-undermining interferences, but also to intervene in nature in order to enrich their choices.
