Animal ethics: an introduction | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education

Animal rights are a pressing issue, and one where political debate needs to be rooted in philosophical thinking. During this course we will address the key ethical questions surrounding our relationship with other species, both individually and as a society. We will explore why it’s so difficult to think clearly about animals and morality, introduce the main theories in animal ethics, and focus on specific practices such as eating animals, experimenting on them, keeping pets, and on the political outcome of the moral standpoints we take.
