    Animal Rearing as a Contract?Catherine Larrère & Raphaël Larrère - 2000 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 12 (1):51-58.
    Can animals, and especially cattle, be the subject ofmoral concern? Should we care about their well-being?Two competing ethical theories have addressed suchissues so far. A utilitarian theory which, inBentham's wake, extends moral consideration to everysentient being, and a theory of the rights orinterests of animals which follows Feinberg'sconceptions. This includes various positions rangingfrom the most radical (about animal liberation) tomore moderate ones (concerned with the well-being ofanimals). Notwithstanding their diversity, theseconceptions share some common flaws. First, as anextension of primarily anthropocentric (...)

    Le Paradoxe de la Globalisation.Raphaël Larrère - 2010 - Cités 42 (2):41.
    Avant de devenir un champ scientifique, l’environnement fut posé à la charnière des années 60 et 70, comme domaine d’intervention de l’État. L’argumentation qui a légitimé les préoccupations environnementales articulait alors, dans une même problématique, deux pratiques qui, depuis le XIXème siècle avaient confronté scientifiques, ingénieurs et pouvoirs publics : la protection..

    Should Nature Be Respected?Raphaël Larrère & Catherine Larrère - 2007 - Social Science Information 46 (1):9-34.
    English One can consider that there are no values to respect in nature, that humans are the measure of all things, and still wish to preserve natural goods and beings. How can we protect nature if we take into account only the “resources” it provides? All we have to do is enlarge the notion of “resource”. To the provision of raw materials and energy, to using nature as a source of food, medication and leisure, we would need to add the (...)

    Une éthique pour les êtres hybrides.Raphaël Larrère - 2006 - Multitudes 1 (1):63-73.
    In this article, Raphaël Larrère compares Agrostis, a genetically modified plant, and Lucifer, a clone of a bull. Based on these two examples, he reflects on the sociological and philosophical consequences of the introduction of artificial components into our environment. What both of these examples share is the belief in the Promethean power of genetic engineering. The border between nature and artifice is fading away, but a radical difference remains : the creation of a plant organism raises the issue of (...)

    Animal Consciousness.Pierre Le Neindre, Emilie Bernard, Alain Boissy, Xavier Boivin, Ludovic Calandreau, Nicolas Delon, Bertrand Deputte, Sonia Desmoulin-Canselier, Muriel Dunier, Nathan Faivre, Martin Giurfa, Jean-Luc Guichet, Léa Lansade, Raphaël Larrère, Pierre Mormède, Patrick Prunet, Benoist Schaal, Jacques Servière & Claudia Terlouw - 2017 - EFSA Supporting Publication 14 (4).
    After reviewing the literature on current knowledge about consciousness in humans, we present a state-of-the art discussion on consciousness and related key concepts in animals. Obviously much fewer publications are available on non-human species than on humans, most of them relating to laboratory or wild animal species, and only few to livestock species. Human consciousness is by definition subjective and private. Animal consciousness is usually assessed through behavioural performance. Behaviour involves a wide array of cognitive processes that have to be (...)

    Environmental Stewardship and Ecological Solidarity: Rethinking Social-Ecological Interdependency and Responsibility.Raphaël Mathevet, François Bousquet, Catherine Larrère & Raphaël Larrère - 2018 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 31 (5):605-623.
    This paper explores and discusses the various meanings of the stewardship concept in the field of sustainability science. We highlight the increasing differences between alternative approaches to stewardship and propose a typology to enable scientists and practitioners to more precisely identify the basis and objectives of the concept of stewardship. We first present the two dimensions we used to map the diversity of stances concerning stewardship. Second, we analyse these positions in relation to the limits of the systemic approach, ideological (...)
