    Animal Abolitionism and ‘Racism Without Racists’.Luis Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2017 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 30 (6):745-764.
    Abolitionism is an animal rights' philosophy and social movement which has recently begun to grow. It has been largely contested but the criticisms directed at it have usually been articulated outside academia. In this article, I wish to contend that one of the criticisms directed at abolitionism—that it contains racist implications—is correct. I do this by defending the idea that abolitionism engages in what Eduardo Bonilla-Silva classifies as ‘racism without racists’—an unintentional and subtle form of racism. I present three ways (...)

    Integrating African Philosophy Into the Western Philosophy Curriculum.Luis Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2018 - Teaching Philosophy 41 (1):21-43.
    In the last three years, there has been a worldwide increase in integrating African philosophy into the philosophy curricula. Nevertheless, given that African philosophy has been largely neglected by Western academia, many philosophers in the West who do wish to integrate it are unaware of how to do it. This article aims at addressing this issue by offering some recommendations on how to integrate African philosophy into the curricula. Particularly, it offers recommendations based on how the history of ancient philosophy, (...)

    South African Animal Legislation and Marxist Philosophy of Law.Luis Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2019 - Cultura 16 (1):23-38.
    Marxist Philosophy as an explanation of social reality has, since the fall of the Berlin Wall, been largely neglected. However, some philosophers have contended that it may still be relevant to explain today’s social reality. In this article, I wish to demonstrate precisely that Marxist philosophy can be relevant to understand social reality. To carry out this task, I show that Marxist philosophy of law can offer a sound explanation of Animal law in South Africa. My argument is that South (...)

    Animal Abolitionism Revisited: Neo-Colonialism and Morally Unjustified Burdens.Luis Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2018 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 31 (4):499-510.
    Bob Fischer has written a reply to my article ‘Animal Abolitionism and ‘Racism without Racists’’. In this article, Fischer contends that my arguments whereby animal abolitionism engages in acts of racism without racists are mistaken. I wish to reply to Fischer’s objections in this article, through four sets of contentions: Fischer’s arguments reveal some misunderstandings in terms of the concept of racism and, particularly, of ‘racism without racists’; his arguments also underestimate the burdens suffered by individuals who wish to become (...)

    Understanding the Impact of the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act (AETA) on Animal Advocacy.Luis Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2017 - Environmental Ethics 39 (4):355-375.
    In many contemporary societies, there is an increasing number of animal welfare sympathizers and activists. In the United States, particularly, there are various individuals who have engaged in activist activities focused on animals. However, since 2006, and under the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act, some of these activities have been classified as terrorist crimes. Independent of whether such activities are morally justified or not, the AETA law exaggerates these activist actions and can take the shape of silencing and restricting forms of (...)

    African Views of Just War in Mandela and Cabral.Luis Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2018 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 32 (4):657.
    The questions of what makes a just war, what is ethical behavior in a war, and what to do following a war have been mostly discussed taking into consideration Western values.1 Other traditions, such as those carried out in Africa, have been largely neglected and, on many occasions, considered inferior.2 In this article, my objective is to offer an African account of just war theory. In particular, I wish to describe and interpret the intellectual production and war actions of key (...)

    Are Future Generations That Belong to Language Minorities Entitled to Group Rights?Luís Cordeiro-Rodrigues - 2016 - South African Journal of Philosophy 35 (1):1-8.
    In this article, I investigate to what extent future generations that belong to language minorities are entitled to group rights that protect their linguistic identity. In particular, I assess whether these future generations are entitled to assistance rights, symbolic claims, self-government rights and exemptions from the law. To address this I outline three arguments supporting group rights for current generations and raise the question of whether these arguments, which are true for current generations, will also be true for future generations. (...)
