about

Received opinion has it that humans are morally superior to non-human animals; human interests matter more than the like interests of animals and the value of human lives is alleged to be greater than the value of nonhuman animal lives. Since this belief causes mayhem and murder, its de-mythologizing requires urgent attention.
Mark Bernstein is the Joyce and Edward E. Brewer Chair in Applied Philosophy at Purdue University, and a founding member of the Oxford Centre on Animal Ethics. He has previously published three books: Fatalism, On Moral Considerability, and Without A Tear.
