Animal Rights and Welfare

This week we turn from looking at normative ethical theories to apply utilitarianism to questions of animal welfare and rights. This is practical or applied ethics. Our main focus will be issues surrounding animal welfare, and the difference between how we treat other human animals and non-human animals. More generally we wish to look at the implications of seriously applying a philosophical theory to our own behaviour. Our reasoning about morality should be motivating for us, and change our behaviour.
