I am Elisa Aaltola, a philosopher who specialises in animal philosophy, environmental ethics and normative moral psychology. I work as a senior researcher in philosophy at the University of Turku, Finland, and spend my time with trees, books and rescue dogs.

My most recent (English) book is Varieties of Empathy: Moral Psychology and Animal Ethics (Rowman & Littlefield Int. 2018). Others include Animal Suffering: Philosophy and Culture (Palgrave MacMillan 2012) and Animal Ethics and Philosophy: Questioning the Orthodoxy (co-edited with John Hadley, Rowman & Littlefield Int. 2014).
