Isidore of Seville and al- Fārābi on Animals: Ontology and Ethics

In Evangelos Protopapadakis (ed.), Animal Ethics: Past and Present Perspectives. Logos Verlag (2012)


In this article the treatment of animals by the early Christian and Arabic philosophy has been developed, focusing mainly on the work of Isidore of Seville and Al-Farabi. The contribution of this study is to highlight the insufficiently considered aspects of the ontology of animals and of their endorsement as moral "subjects" in both Latin and Arabic literature up to our days.
