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.
