Seminars at Lisbon, Coventry and Oxford on the Ethics of Helping Animals Suffering in Nature

I’ll soon be giving three seminars at Lisbon, Oxford and Coventry on the question of the harms that nonhuman animals suffer due to natural causes. Many people are unaware of such harms. However, they are often terrible to nonhuman animals. I claim that in those cases in which we can help animals without causing a bigger harm it would be a very good thing to do it. This is just what most of us think in the case of human beings, so defending a different view for nonhuman animals, which would be harmful for them, is speciesist. Here’s the info of the seminars:

  • In Lisbon the talk will be at the at Mattos Romão Room in the Philosophy Institute, Faculdade de Letras at Lisbon University, on Friday, 2nd March, 14:30.
  • In Coventry, the talk will by at the science concourse, B2.01, at the University of Warwick, Monday 12nd March, 19:00.
  • In Oxford, the talk will be at Massey Room in Balliol College, Oxford University, on Tuesday 13th March, 19:30.

You can read the paper I’ll be presenting at these talks here.

PS1: In addition, in Lisbon I’ll be giving a workshop on antispeciesism and activism at Espaço Kultdulé, which is at Rua Diogo Couto 1, on Saturday 3rd March, 12:00.

PS2: The talks in Lisbon will be in Portuguese.

  1. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you just can do with a few percent to power
    the message home a little bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
