Mini Bio (1)
Tom Regan is a moral philosopher and pioneer animal-rights activist whose novel The Case For Animal Rights helped pave the way for the creation of animal protection laws.
Armed with a doctorate in philosophy and passion for protecting animals, Regan helped form the animal rights and animal liberation movements of the 1960s.
He provided moral explanations in support of the right of animals to be treated with respect. His key philosophical tenet is animals, like humans, have lives that matter to them: animals, like humans, have desires, sense-perceptions, beliefs, motives, and memory, and as such, deserve the same right to live as human beings do.
For 40+ years Regan has actively fought against breeding animals for food, animal experimentation, and commercial hunting.
