The title alludes to an article of the Summa theologiae on whether irrational creatures are fit to be loved with charity. There Thomas effectively steers between an extreme environmentalism and an extreme personalism.  He can affirm both that irrational creatures have a worth that is independent of their usefulness to us, and that our dignity is incommensurably higher.
