About the Course:

We will discuss animal ethics from a philosophical point of view, meaning we will examine our obligations towards animals on how they should be treated. We will discuss topics ranging from whether animals have rights to whether our current treatment of animals is speciesist, meaning that it is discriminatory in a manner akin to racism or sexism. The course is constructed with both philosophy and non-philosophy majors in mind. There will be time devoted to making sure all people are comfortable with the texts, understanding what philosophy is, and learning how to practice it.

How to Enroll:

CCN's will be given out the first day of class on Tuesday, September 8th. Enrollment will be limited to 30 people (there are 15 lower-division and 15 upper-division slots). Both philosophy and non-philosophy majors are welcome and there is no previous knowledge required for the course.
