Example text

She gives a helpful categorisation of different meanings of wildness and argues that climate change might reduce both wildness in a constitutive sense and wildness in the sense of self-willing. One feature that seems inherent in the advent of the Anthropocene is that of animal captivity on an enormous scale. Bovenkerk examines the question whether this captivity is morally justified and this inevitably leads to the further question of whether animal domestication is justified. She argues that the debate about the moral justifiability of animal justification could benefit from taking the discussion to the species-level.
