“Ethics and Our Treatment of Animals”

05:00 pm to 06:00 pm
Presidents Hall in Franklin Hall
https://themester.indiana.edu/news-events/events-iu-calendar.html

Dr. Peter Singer will begin by setting out the traditional Western view of the moral status of animals. Next he will discuss what he refers to as the “mainstream” view today, and offer a critique of this view. He will argue that, notwithstanding of the progress made over the past 40 years, our treatment of animals remains wrong because it is “speciesist.” He will explain the concept of “speciesism” and indicate why it is not an ethically defensible view. Dr. Peter Singer will argue that we owe nonhuman animals equal consideration of their interests, and will explain the changes this view requires in our present practices regarding animals.

Philosopher Peter Singer is the author of “Animal Liberation.” a seminal work looking at ethics and the treatment of non-human animals. Dr. Singer is currently the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University.
