This week we are covering the Tannenbaum article and Favre, Chapter 5 on state regulation of ownership. Jerrold Tannenbaum, “Animals and the Law: Property, Cruelty, Rights,” Social Research Vol. 62, No. 3 (Fall 1995), pp. 539-59.
- What is Tannenbaum’s thesis?
- In the first portion of the Tannenbaum article, what does he contend is the problem with the “activist” view of animals-as-property?
- What is the historical distinction between wild and domestic animals?
- What role has the concept of “cruelty” played in the legal history of human-animals relations?
- Does Tannenbaum believe cruelty laws have achieved what their proponents sought? Why or why not?
