    Dignity and Its Violation Examined Within the Context of Animal Ethics.Rebekah Humphreys - 2016 - Ethics and the Environment 21 (2):143-162.
    The word ‘dignity’ may be used in a presentational sense, for example, one might say “she presents herself with dignity”, or in a social sense, for example, one might say “she fulfilled her duty with dignity, or honour.” However, in this paper I will not be using ‘dignity’ in either of these senses. Rather, the sense of dignity I will be concerned with is one that is related to ideas about the value or worth of a being. This latter sense (...)

    Game Birds: The Ethics of Shooting Birds for Sport.Rebekah Humphreys - 2010 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 4 (1):52 – 65.
    This paper aims to provide an ethical assessment of the shooting of animals for sport. In particular, it discusses the use of partridges and pheasants for shooting. While opposition to hunting and shooting large wild mammals is strong, game birds have often taken a back seat in everyday animal welfare concerns. However, the practice of raising game birds for sport poses significant ethical issues. Most birds shot are raised in factory-farming conditions, and there is a considerable amount of evidence to (...)

    Justice and Non-Human Animals- Part II.Robin Attfield & Rebekah Humphreys - 2017 - Bangladesh Journal of Bioethics 8 (1):44-57.
    It is widely held that moral obligations to non-human beings do not involve considerations of justice. For such a view, nonhuman interests are always prone to be trumped by human interests. Rawlsian contractarianism comprises an example of such a view. Through analysis of such theories, this essay highlights the problem of reconciling the claim that humans have obligations to non-humans with the claim that our treatment of the latter is not a matter of justice. We argue that if it is (...)

    Animal Thoughts on Factory Farms: Michael Leahy, Language and Awareness of Death.Rebekah Humphreys - 2008 - Between the Species 13 (8):2.
    The idea that language is necessary for thought and emotion is a dominant one in philosophy. Animals have taken the brunt of this idea, since it is widely held that language is exclusively human. Michael Leahy makes a case against the moral standing of factory-farmed animals based on such ideas. His approach is Wittgensteinian: understanding is a thought process that requires language, which animals do not possess. But he goes further than this and argues that certain factory farming methods do (...)

    The Argument From Existence, Blood-Sports, and 'Sport-Slaves'.Rebekah Humphreys - 2014 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 27 (2):331-345.
    The argument from existence is often used as an attempted justification for our use of animals in commercial practices, and is often put forward by lay-persons and philosophers alike. This paper provides an analysis of the argument from existence primarily within the context of blood-sports (applying the argument to the example of game-birding), and in doing so addresses interesting and related issues concerning the distinction between having a life and living, or worthwhile life and mere existence, as well as issues (...)
