Description

Professor Steiner offered an overview and a critique of historical views about the superiority of human beings over nonhuman animals, as well as a reflection on the implications of these historical views for contemporary controversies over animal rights. A central focus in this presentation was the question whether veganism can be justified as a moral obligation as opposed to a mere lifestyle preference. Anyone who consumes nonhuman animals or relies on the treatment of nonhuman animals as resources for the satisfaction of human needs and desires will be interested in these ideas and the central controversies that arise from them. -- description shared on social media
