Polish Interest in Animal Ethics

25th January 2011

There are two indications of an emerging Polish interest in the field of animal ethics.

The first is an issue of the influential journal Konteksty devoted to questions about animals in culture, philosophy, and theology. The issue comprises 21 articles by Polish scholars, such as Agata Bielik-Robson, Arkadiusz Żychliński, and Darjusz Czaja, and also by some English scholars, including Paul Badham, Brian Klug, and Andrew Linzey.

The articles are reproduced online in Polish here, and in English here.

The second is the publication of the Director Andrew Linzey’s Animal Theology into Polish by the publisher Wydawnictwo Wam of Cracow. This is the first work of theology on animals to appear in Poland.
