This chapter explores the issues of ecology, animal rights and the poverty of humanism in the context of Luc Ferry's book “New Ecological Order.” It analyzes Ferry's humanist frame which shows how radical environmentalism and animal rights emerge as distinct problematics and his discussion of the relation between radical ecology and liberal democracy. This chapter also provides an overview of animal rights philosophy as expounded by Tom Regan and Peter Singer.
