520    "They don't have syntax, so we can eat them." According to
       Richard Sorabji, this conclusion attributed to the Stoic 
       philosophers was based on Aristotle's argument that 
       animals lack reason. In his fascinating, deeply learned 
       book, Sorabji traces the roots of our thinking about 
       animals back to Aristotelian and Stoic beliefs. Charting a
       recurrent theme in ancient philosophy of mind, he shows 
       that today's controversies about animal rights represent 
       only the most recent chapter in millennia-old debates. 
       Sorabji surveys a vast range of Greek philosophical texts 
       and considers how classical discussions of animals' 
       capacities intersect with central questions, not only in 
       ethics but in the definition of human rationality as well:
       the nature of concepts; how perceptions differ from 
       beliefs; how memory, intention, and emotion relate to 
       reason; and to what extent speech, skills, and inference 
       can serve as proofs of reason. Focusing on the 
       significance of ritual sacrifice and the eating of meat, 
       he explores religious contexts of the treatment of animals
       in ancient Greece and in medieval Western Christendom. He 
       also looks closely at the contemporary defenses of animal 
       rights offered by Peter Singer, Tom Regan, and Mary 
       Midgley. Animal Minds and Human Morals sheds new light on 
       traditional arguments surrounding the status of animals 
       while pointing beyond them to current moral dilemmas. It 
       will be crucial reading for scholars and students in the 
       fields of ancient philosophy, ethics, history of 
       philosophy, classics, and medieval studies, and for 
       everyone seriously concerned about our relationship with 
       other species.
