About the Author

Dawne McCance is University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Religion at the University of Manitoba. Her books include Posts: Re Addressing the Ethical and Medusa's Ear: University Foundings from Kant to Chora L, both also published by SUNY Press, and Derrida on Religion: Thinker of Differance.


"...with her clear prose and simultaneous theoretical breadth and depth, McCance provides an accessible introduction to key and emerging theoretical arguments brewing in CAS ... McCance's timely book will be an excellent tool for drawing in new scholars and familiarizing them with the field. Her book reviews and encourages desperately needed ideas and interventions that will hopefully contribute to sparking a dramatic rethinking and reconfiguring of human-animal relations." - The Goose "McCance's work is an insightful addition to the dialogue of animal ethics." - CHOICE "Dawne McCance, educated first as a biologist and geneticist, and later as a philosopher, has produced an extraordinary book. It introduces us to the principal philosophical issues in the areas of animal rights, animal studies, ecology, and ethics in a lucidly argued way, with both breadth and depth. The major contributions of feminist thinkers, of religious traditions from all over the world, and of Continental European thinkers-above all, the remarkable work of Jacques Derrida-are presented in a clear and comprehensible way. The writing and thinking are always pellucid and dependably profound. No reader will ever forget the preface to the book, 'Chopped Liver.' And no reader who works through the book will fail to be grateful for this comprehensive and truly critical introduction to critical animal studies." - David Farrell Krell, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, DePaul University
