animal rights ethics > gruppe messel

For a long time, we have been running our website simorgh.de > ‚from animal mythologies to an antibiologistic animal sociology‘. The site has grown so much ‚contenwise‘ with its subsections that it was time to summarize the results of years of generating animal rights-related thinking in a comprehensive form on a new site. In addition, there was the problem that the spelling of the name „simorgh“ ( ≈ the Persian phoenix) causes problems for many people. In the future, the page Simorgh.de shall be our specific space for contributions that are more relevant in terms of animal mythology, while contributions on animal rights in terms of animal rights ethics shall be made accessible here in a summarized way. In the probably rather long lasting phase of reorganization there will be some overlaps. This may be forgiven.

our approach


The content clarifies the objectives

We discuss

  • Nonhumans and an antibiologistic ethic
  • critical approaches regarding society’s stances towards Animality/Being Animal and the natural co-existent entitites
  • as a political acency: being a pluralistic, creative ’subjective being‘

We clearly take a radical antibiologistic stance in termsn of Animal Autonomy, Animal ‚Liberation‘ (which can be a quite difficult term), Animal Right as well as Environmental concerns.
