Loving Pets, Living with Livestock

Monday, September 28, 2015 - 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

What does American pragmatism contribute to contemporary debates about human-animal relationships? Does it acknowledge our connections to all living things? Does it bring us closer to an ethical treatment of all animals? And what about pets and livestock?

This afternoon at 1 p.m. in Terrace 124, join the animal conservation and care and philosophy programs for a public lecture on animal ethics and pragmatism with University of Oregon philosophy professor Erin McKenna.

McKenna is the author of the book Pets, People, and Pragmatism. This event is sponsored by the college’s Speakers Bureau. Contact keithh@greenmtn.edu for more information.
