Abstract
Three recent books offer alternative views of hunting: Matt Cartmill’s A View to A Death in the Morning, James Swan’s In Defense of Hunting. and Forrest Wood’s The Delights and Dilemmas of Hunting. First, I argue that Cartmill’s claim of continuity of kind between animals and persons is both overstated and logically disconnected from the hunting/anti-hunting debate. Second, I argue that Cartmill’s claim that the suffering of sentient animals is somehow intrinsically undesirable exhibits an unjustified prejudice toward middle-sized organisms.
