Abstract: This thesis examines the problem of grounding the ethical status of nonhuman animals. To deal with this problem, the thoughts of two of the most influential contemporary philosophers, Peter Singer and Tom Regan, were explored; alternative religious approaches to the problem were discussed by examining Buddhism and Jainism; new directions in philosophy and ethics were outlined and then drawn out; and a survey of the current practical problems with the ethical status of non-human animals was given. As a result of these explorations, I argue that the most promising way to establish the ethical status of non-human animals is through a philosophy that emphasizes embodiment as well as a method of ethical decisionmaking that includes empathy, sympathy and love.
