Attfield, Robin (2019) Futurity, selves and further organisms. Animal Sentience 27(4)
Adrian Treves, Francisco J. Santiago-Ávila, and William S. Lynn, Just preservation
Most aspects of Treves et al.’s target article are commendable, but I would suggest: explicitly including (1) Singer’s ‘equal interests’ principle; adjusting (2) Mathews’s principle of ‘bioproportionality’; and clarifying the implications of (3) Parfit’s Non-Identity Problem, (4) the limits of present predictions of future needs, and (5) the application of the concept of selves to biotic individuals. There is also a problem about (6) how plants are to be individuated.
