Quatrième de couverture :

Have humans been sharing the planet with other intelligent life for millions of years without realizing it? This timely and important book considers the answers and implications, and encourages humans to reconsider our treatment of the species with which we share the earth.

In this thought–provoking account, White relies on his more than fifteen year journey to understand the nature of dolphins, an odyssey that took him from the classroom to the center of the ocean. With a growing body of research supporting the sophisticated cognitive and emotional capacities of dolphins, important questions concerning their ethical treatment have arisen. Rich with engaging first–hand accounts, In Defense of Dolphins combines accessible science and philosophy, surveying the latest research on dolphin intelligence and social behavior, making a strong case for improving the moral status of dolphins, and advocating an end to their inhumane treatment.

Description du livre Wiley-Blackwell, 2007. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Tom White's book is a superb intellectual achievement. It combines mastery of the scientific evidence together with acute ethical analysis. It is a seminal contribution to the literature on animal ethics." - Andrew Linzey, Director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics "Thomas White does the research and brings the evidence for psychological complexity in dolphins to his readers in a compelling manner. Amidst the ongoing worldwide exploitation of dolphins in drive hunts and captivity he challenges all of us to rethink how we treat these beings. This wonderful and important book could not have come at a better time." - Lori Marino, Emory University "In Defense of Dolphins is a much needed look at the current status of ethics and treatment of dolphins in a variety of conditions. Dr. White reviews current research to argue that we should reanalyze and reconsider some of the treatment issues around dolphins and human activity. As research and education strives to improve our world and our treatment of the inhabitants in it, so does this extensive exploration of the issues around another intelligent species." - Denise Herzing, Wild Dolphin Project "'Alien intelligence' or 'nonhuman person', or.' You will never think about dolphins the same way after reading this insightful and thought-provoking new book." - Jerry R. Schubel, President and CEO, Aquarium of the Pacific " In Defense of Dolphins is the most important book ever written about these animals. This is a book that has been crying out to be produced, but one that could only be properly written now. Professor White has carefully, indeed painstakingly, taken the latest scientific research and used it to address the key questions that make the case for dolphinkind to be given 'moral standing' or 'rights'. His case is compelling and the book is both fascinating as an exercise in the systematic distillation of information, as well as its status as the key document that makes a case for the better treatment of dolphins. It is also highly readable and rich with remarkable insights into dolphin intelligence and behaviour." - Mark Simmonds , International Director of Science, WDCS, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society.
