The Ethics Of Fur

The first multidisciplinary book that addresses the “urgent” issue of animal protection, The Ethics of Fur edited by Professor Andrew Linzey and Dr Clair Linzey, Directors of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, opens up and furthers the ethical, political, and -specifically – legislative endeavours to encourage the anti-fur movement.

Covering the history, culture, and political arguments for and against fur, The Ethics Of Fur should interest scholars and students, as well as those engaged on either side of the debate. It is not common for academics to engage with pressing and contentious moral issues, but this is precisely where the eighteen contributors to The Ethics Of Fur lead the way.

The #1 Writing Tool

Divided into three parts, The Ethics Of Fur first addresses the historical and religious perspectives, including opposition that the fur trade has received from as long ago as the 17th Century, plus the 19th Century boycott against feathered hats. It also discusses subjects such as the use of fur in clerical robes. 

Part two of the book explores ethical and cultural perspectives, including how Disney and pop music have influenced attitudes to fur. Part three looks at political and legal issues.

Whatever might have been true of the past, the production of fur is now morally problematic in terms of both necessity and suffering. There is no necessity in killing animals for nonessential purposes, such as adornment, fashion, or vanity. The argument for utility simply doesn’t hold up. Alternative clothing is now readily available, enduring, and less costly. Worse still, since we know that the animals exploited are sentient, causing them suffering or making them liable to suffering is arguably, intrinsically wrong.
