Mit einigem Recht kann man Peter Singer als einen der umstrittensten Philosophen der Gegenwart bezeichnen – doch mit ebensolcher Berechtigung auch als einen der einflussreichsten und originellsten Denker. Sein früher Aufsatz von 1974 stellt unangenehme Fragen: Mit welchem Recht maßen wir uns an, Tiere als uns grundsätzlich unterlegen zu verstehen, sie als Verfügungsmasse zu behandeln? Unser Vorurteil, die menschliche Spezies sei als solche immer vorzuziehen, steht auf tönernen Füßen. Der Band bietet eine Neuübersetzung des einflussreichen Textes, rekonstruiert den Argumentationsverlauf und zeichnet dessen Wirkungsgeschichte nach. E-Book mit Seitenzählung der Originalpaginierung.

Working Equal exposes the myth of heroic individualism that is central to contemporary western thought. With more than 35% of full-time faculty with a spouse or partner in the same profession, dual career couples are a growing presence in higher education in the U.S.. This compelling and innovative volume examines and testifies to the contribution of intimate and familial relationships to artistic, literary, and scientific accomplishment. An original study of a growing phenomena in higher education, Working Equal presents a new and invaluable portrait of contemporary faculty life.

In many societies today, educational aims or goals are commonly characterized in terms of "equality," "equal opportunity," "equal access" or "equal rights," the underlying assumption being that "equality" in some form is an intelligible and sensible educational ideal. Yet, there are different views and lively debates about what sort of equality should be pursued; in particular, the issue of equality of educational opportunity has served as justification for much of the postwar restructuring of educational systems around the world. The author explores different interpretations of the concept of equality of educational opportunity in Japan, especially as applied to post-World War II educational policies. By focusing on the positions taken by key actors such as the major political parties, central administrative bodies, teachers' unions, and scholars, he describes how their concepts have developed over time and in what way they relate to the making of educational policy, especially in light of Japan's falling birthrate and aging society.
