Chapter 3 (Between Possessions and Persons) is a forceful critique of one of the main proponents of animal rights, the Australian philosopher Peter Singer along with his acolyte Paola Cavalieri. Fontenay argues that taking animals into philosophical account should not lead to neglect for what she calls the “human exception” but rather to a revalorization of its vital fragility.
