In my first book I examined the tension between faith and reason in Descartes and argued that reason alone is insufficient to ground ethical commitments. In my books on nonhuman animals, I have applied this insight to argue for the need to acknowledge the fundamental animality of humans and our felt kinship with nonhuman animals. My most recent book is entitled Animals and the Limits of Postmodernism, published by Columbia University Press. In this book I examine the limits of postmodern approaches (particularly Derrida’s) in the endeavor to acknowledge the moral status of nonhuman animals, and I argue for veganism as a strict ethical imperative.
