"The soul-making position that Dougherty defends here is interesting, subtle, and bold. It represents the first serious and sustained defense of a position that, as I noted, most have written off in a sentence or two. I suspect that this book represents the beginning of a trajectory of scholarship defending soul making theodicies for animal pain and as a result is an important text for philosophers interested in the topic to read with care." (Michael J. Murray, International Journal of the Philosophy of Religion, Vol. 78, 2015)
