Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Animal Pain follows a spate of books attempting to do theodicy within the enlarged moral domain that our awareness of animal pain provides. Theodicies tend to be anthropocentric; however, the suffering and pain of non-human animals demands a thorough overhaul of theodicy, which in turn has serious implications for systematic theology.
