The topic of this work is the relationship between human and animal, which is considered from bioethical perspective, especially contemporary bioethical theories which are critically oriented towards speciesism. In that sense, the notion of “speciesism” is explained, mostly according to Peter Singer, as well as the differences between old speciesism, new speciesism and non-speciesism, according to Joan Dunayer. Basic speciesist standpoint implies many inhumane practices regarding non-human living beings, which are carried out on a daily basis. This, in this work are elaborated both general issues of the equality of animals, their moral status, personality and rights, and different ways of their exploitation in the fields of human nutrition, scientific research and amusement.
