Answered on Jul 17 2019
Regan defined inherent value as the value an animal possesses in its own right, the opposite of which is the instrumental value referring to the concept that an animal only has a value to other animals. According to him, those that have inherent value have the same basic rights that humans have and those who do not have inherent value are have no moral right. All who possess inherent value have the basic right to never to be treated merely as means to the ends of others. Regan has been criticized for the lack of certainty with which his ‘inherent value’ can be determined.
