ISEE member and Italy representative Matteo Andreozzi (Università degli Studi of Milan) recently edited the book Etiche dell’ambiente. Voci e prospettive, which includes contributions from Ralph Acampora, Carol Adams, Matthew Calarco, J. Baird Callicott, Warwick Fox, Greta Gaard, Holmes Rolston III, Peter Singer, and numerous Italian scholars. A brief introduction to the book, in English and Italian, can be found at the Relations: Beyond Anthropocentrism website.
Matteo has also just launched the journal Relations. Beyond Anthropocentrism, a peer-reviewed journal focusing on trans-anthropocentric ethics and related topics. Using Marc Bekoff’s The Emotional Lives of Animals (2007) as a starting point, the first volume focuses on animal emotions, offering examples of the intersection of scientific attitudes and ethical concerns toward nonhuman animals. In the first issue of the volume, the authors describe the consequences of the recognition of animal lives on laws and policies, while the second issue will concentrate on the application of the idea of the emotional lives of animals.
