This paper attempts to show that we can discuss animals as members of the moral community without using rights language. This view rests on the notion that (1) animals have inherent value and that (2) the human animal is not a unique creature, but is simply one species of animal among tens of thousands of others. To say that animals have an inherent value is to say that their value is independent of our judgements about them . Adopting such a radical view would radically change our world for the better.
