In this fresh and powerfully argued book, Mark Bernstein identifies the qualities that make an entity deserving of moral consideration.

It is frequently assumed that only (normal) human beings count.

Bernstein argues instead for "experientialism"-the view that having conscious experiences is necessary and sufficient for moral standing.

He demonstrates that this position requires us to include many non-human animals in our moral realm, but not to the extent that manydeep ecologists champion.
