CORE 003 SC - Animal Rights and Speciesism


Through weekly lectures, discussions, visual presentations, movies, and culinary arts, this course examines the present day treatment of animals. We will develop an understanding of speciesism by looking at how humans treat, use, consume and exploit animals; and explore the contested issue of animal welfare vs. rights. The course employs philosophical, economic, sociological and scientific perspectives to analyze industrial practices and their impacts on global economics and planetary health. By surveying ideas and practices from antiquity to the present, we will analyze how moral attitudes have shifted through time and helped to create today's animal rights movement.

Course Credit: 1.0
