  1. Tom Regan's approach
  2. Peter Singer's approach

The animal rights movement is often oversimplified and mocked by many in contemporary society, and this is often a result of an unwillingness to look at the facts and the various philosophies that make up the movement. An individual caught up in the ideas of the day is often unable to think outside of this realm, and many important ideas, such as the inherent rights of animals to be free of harm from humans, do not appear to make any sense. A careful analysis of two philosophers, Tom Regan and Peter Singer, allows us to better understand the philosophy that underlies the animal rights movement and justifies the passions and anger that many activists feel over the needless killing and torturing of animals.
