Abstract

Advocates a social-philosophical, rather than ontological, approach to whether non-humans such as animals and artificial agents should be brought within the contractarian framework of distributive justice. Highlights, with reference to John Rawls and Martha Nussbaum, the difficulties for liberalism of drawing non-humans into the sphere of distributive justice, but argues that such an approach can be justified by reliance on the notion of a co-operative scheme.
