Abstract/Description

This presentation will be of my Senior Honor's Thesis, which explores the issue of animal rights from various philosophical perspectives. These perspectives include utilitarianism, Kantianism, ecofeminism, and others. Through this cross-section of views, I formulate and defend my own position. I ultimately advocate for the extension of basic rights and liberties to non-human animals, as well as a respect for these rights through the practice of ethical vegetarianism.
