Laboratory Animal Welfare" is out. This includes a chapter by Gail Golab and myself called "Chapter 1 – History, Philosophies, and Concepts of Animal Welfare".
I can't claim this chapter is a thrill a minute. But it is a useful exercise, I think, to sit down and think: 'how did we get here?'. That essentially is what this chapter is, when it comes to how we deal with the welfare of laboratory animals.
It includes a brief timelines of the major developments in the three dimensions of public events (history), the work of philosophers (philosophy), and the word of scientists and regulators (concepts). I hope putting this all in one place, rather briefly and as clearly as possible, will be useful to some people out there.
